Drumstick and Thigh

Young Tim goes to Zaire to write his dissertation in African Studies. While there he meets and marries a beautiful librarian darker than he is, flies her home to meet the family. Tim's father asks his mother if she knew about Margot. Mother says she didn’t but she’s not surprised. On Thanksgiving Day Tim likes the dark meat, the biggest and meatiest drumstick and thigh.
