Island Quaintness

Today is my niece's birthday. In celebration, my sister's family is having Chinese food flown over to the island. Yep, that's right: no Chinese take-out on Nantucket. You have to order from Hyannis, and then have them deliver it to the airport, where Nantucket Air will fly it over, and then you go pick it up at the Nantucket airport. They never showed that on Wings.

I remember when I was little having Chinese food was a big adventure. All of our family friends would come over and it would be a big event. Tonight, I'm going to have Chinese take-out, but somehow I have a feeling it will lack the sense of pomp and circumstance that accompanied the egg rolls of my youth.
