I am thankful for today's classic dialog. The fact that Mary is in New York City for the sole purpose of spending time with Olive, and even living with her, makes today's Moyisms even more Moyish than usual. I love that they are actually already on a local outing when she asks. I am excited by the vagueness of the number of weekends Mary plans to stay, and the suggestion that Mary plans to spend every moment Olive is out of school on the town with her.
Just for fun, I ran Mary's sentence through Google Translate a few times and then back into English, and it came up with, "Olive, what should we do for fun while I'm visiting you?"
Two years ago, on Thanksgiving, Mary was also in New York City, enjoying her post-mugging lunch:
It reminds me that I never reported on my experience in our local community production of Footloose. I'll just say, it was a defining role for me, and truthfully, the time of my life. So glad I let my neighbor convince me to audition, even though I hadn't done anything like it for 18 years. Now I can't wait to do it again!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
