'Wait, you ran out of what?"

Here's looking at you, kid.

Bogart300In all the excitement of Wednesday's worst Christmas meal ever, I forgot that legendary Humphrey Bogart was born on Dec. 25 in 1899.

And I'm thinking so was the turkey on the so-called turkey and dressing dinner at a Plano, Texas restaurant where the temperature had to be at least 85 degrees inside and the advertised turkey and dressing and cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes plate arrived at the table sans cranberry sauce.

"Oh, I guess I should have told you that we ran out of cranberry sauce two days ago," the waiter said. Sheesh! You think?

So happy belated birthday Humphrey. If the legends are true, you were never one to forget the sauce.
