GLORIA: Katie showed me her Thanksgiving project and there’s stuff on it about the kind of soil you need to grow corn and which way Haddock swims off Cape Cod and I’m thinking: where’s the birds made out of hands like you used to bring home from school—
FRAN: It’s a different kind of school, Ma.
Thanksgiving arts & crafts…
FRAN: Maybe we even all, we each all even write down what this day means, what we’re really Thankful for—
GLORIA: I’m not writing anything my spelling’s no good.
FRAN: We each write what we’re thankful for and after dinner we say it, we read it all out loud like we write it on paper leaves—
ANTHONY: Paper leaves?
GLORIA: Your Katie’s smart, she’d know if I messed up a word.
