ME (to person answering phone at nearest Vinny Testa's): So that'll be one famiglia size Classic Chop Salad with no dressing, onions, or fried onions; one famiglia size Spaghetti with Meatballs with meat sauce; and one individual size (which we both know will really serve at least two people) chicken picatta.
ME: Oh, yay! That's our Thanksgiving dinner. We order it from you guys every year, so we can spend it together without any bother.
HER: Oh, god. I go to my mom's house every year, 'cause she lives right around the corner. I have to peel and chop 20 lbs. of potatoes. My hands are always bloody and raw for days afterward. But at least my boyfriend is coming this year, and he's going to help.
HER: Yeah, it'll be a LOT better.
