Her doggy bag was her only consolation as she watched the nightly news on TV.
The new guest was part of the Writers Group and Golf Package at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. It was the marketing brainchild of the Face of Everyman.

Each Thanksgiving was much the same: freeloaders from nearby sanctuaries showed up make sure that the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa would have dishes to meet their unique dietary needs. the Face of Everyman was “tearing his hair out.” “Could no one just be thankful for a good meal?” The Chef had received a good price on meal worms. Protein should be a part of everyone’s diet.
