Thanksgiving Rainbow Snippet from Jeff Baker, November 19, 2022.

Every week we post six lines from a work of ours, a work-in-progress or published or a recommendation of someone else’s work with at least one LGBT character. Posted at Rainbow Snippets here:

A Thanksgiving snippet this week, from my recent flash fic story “Baby, If You’ve Ever Wondered.” Borrowing the title from the theme to the TV series with the best Thanksgiving show ever. No falling turkeys here; instead a young man takes his nephew (in his baby carrier) down to the kitchen early Thanksgiving morning to check on the Turkey and not wake up everyone else in the house.

You finished with your bott…oh. You’re asleep. Good, you’re not the first guy I’ve bored into unconsciousness. I’ll just take you, (umpf!) into the living room, set you down and kick back in Dad’s old chair and look through yesterday’s paper. Where’s the sports section? Oh, there it is. I can’t find anything anymore, must be gettin’ old.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! ——-jeff b.

      Thanks! A lot of nostalgia here; My late Dad really did prep the turkey overnight when I was a kid and I have babysat nieces and nephews in baby carriers. (They are all grown now!)
