Getting the family together for Thanksgiving (2006-11-19)
Joe, in Miami, calls his son Mark in New York the day before Thanksgiving and says, “I hate to ruin your day, Mark, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.
“Pop, what are you talking about?” Mark screams.
We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer, “Joe explains. “We’re sick of each other, and I’m sick of talking about this, so you call your sister Sally in Chicago and tell her.”
Frantic, Mark calls Sally, who explodes on the phone. “Like heck they’re getting divorced,” she shouts, “I’ll take care of this.”
She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at her father, “You are NOT getting divorced. Don’t do a single thing until I get there. I’m calling my brother back, and we’ll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don’t do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?” and hangs up.
Joe hangs up his phone and turns to his wife Nora. “Okay, it’s all taken care of,” he says. “They’re coming for Thanksgiving and paying their own way.”
