Memories of a dinner in Falls Church VA, years ago, in the mid late 90s or so. Present were my law ex, her mother, her cousin, my son Mark, the cousin's son, and myself. Understand, the ladies there were VERY naive. The cousin's former husband was Claus, who had been a cook.
One of the ladies said the turkey carving was good, but not as good as Claus could do. He was an expert at boning a turkey.
The three males looked at each other and, stifling laughs, kept on eating.
The other ladies took it up. Nobody boned a turkey like Claus boned a turkey.
We averted our gaze and tried to keep from choking on our food.
They kept at it. When he boned a turkey, it was a work of art. Nobody could bone a turkey like he could. That was too much.
My ex asked what was so funny to the three of us, and I had to reply it was a private joke, I'd explain later. And they kept at it....
