One of the highlights of the Thanksgiving was the family photo that would eventually become the Pulaski Christmas card. Mr. and Mrs. Pulaski stood by the mantle over the fake fireplace. Eileen stood between them in her ugliest sweater.
Hercules the Lesser got the camera set up. He made sure everything was as it should be. Then he hit the timer and tried to make it into the frame in time.
Of course, he never did, so every year the Christmas card from the Pulaski family included two proud parents and a lovely daughter and a great grey blur. No never noticed and no one ever said a word about it. This year – like every other year – Hercules the Lesser combed his hair and tied his tie to get ready to take the family picture.
He loved Thanksgiving.
