At Sassy Girl's house on Thanksgiving day, everything smelled fantastic! The grown-ups were in the kitchen filling the best china dishes with all sorts of yummy Thanksgiving food. In the spirit of sharing, every Thanksgiving Sassy Girl's family made a big turkey dinner to eat with special friends.
All of a sudden the doorbell rang. It was Muffin, one of Sassy Girl's bestest friends. "Come in!" Sassy Girl said excitedly. "Dinner's almost ready!" "I've brought Mash potatoes," Muffin said, smiling, holding up a dish of great-looking Mash potatoes. And Mom has made Turkey," Sassy Girl said. This is going to be great!
Dinner was terrific. The turkey and stuffing was especially good this year. But, the big question every year at Sassy Girl's house was: "Who will share the wishbone?" This year was no different! "Me, me!" Sassy Girl and Muffin pleaded. The peeps smiled. Mom nodded and said, "Go ahead you two!"
Sassy Girl and Muffin were given the wishbone. Each grabbed one end and pulled. All of a sudden, the wishbone slipped from their fingers and flew into the air! From nowhere, Dallas appeared and grabbed the wishbone! Everyone jumped up! Everyone started shouting: "Get it!" "Grab the bone!" "Dallas don't eat that!" Chairs fell over and dishes almost crashed to the floor as everyone tried to catch Dallas. Dallas loving all the attention ran happily around the room, slipping away each time someone got close!
Finally, Mom caught Dallas and got the wishbone away. "Whew! Here it is," Mom said, holding the wishbone in the air for all to see. Oh no! It was broken! For a moment, everyone was silent. "Well," Mom said, starting to laugh. "It looks like Dallas gets to make the wish this year! I hope it's a good one!" Then, everyone laughed and applauded. "More pie!" Muffin said.
This is a Thanksgiving to remember always, Sassy Girl thought, looking around at all the happy faces. Sassy Girl would always remember this Thanksgiving as "Dallas’ Thanksgiving Wish!"
