Thanksgiving is the time of year in the Sonheim family where we all migrate to Springfield Missouri to see my mom’s side of the family. This year was an especially fun one, and despite the fact that I had to write TWO papers for my history of theology class, I still managed to thouroughly enjoy myself.
I was picked up from the airport on Wednesday night. The very next morning my brother and I and three of our cousins ran in a five kilometer “Turkey Trot” race. It is something of a tradition for my brother and I to talk about how we just want to “jog” and not really try to race each other, yet as soon as the gun blasts, brotherly competition kicks in and we kick in. So far I have been able to maintain my superior status and beat Will in the past two years. This year I extended my winning streak, pushing past him and a man dressed as a pilgrim on the final hill. Here is a picture of us post-trot. I believe Will was doing his Andy Sandberg (the comedian from SNL) impersonation and I was doing my impersonation of being cool.
