Happy Thanksgiving…here’s dessert!
There’s a short story I read when I was really young (probably under the age of 10) by O. Henry. If you’ve never read O. Henry (actually, that was a pen name) or have never heard anyone discuss him, than you might not be aware that he was best known for his “twist” endings.
You have, hopefully though, at one Christmas time in your life, heard or read his famous piece, “The Gift of the Magi.”
This short I I’d read years ago, called “Two Thanksgiving Day Gentlemen,” also deals with the theme of sacrifice for another. Since I can’t replicate the experience of a home-baked pumpkin or apple pie on my blog, I thought this haunting little tale might be a great substitute finish on your Holiday meals. Happy Thanksgiving!
