I decided to give in, and I drove up to the Wedge to do some grocery shopping. Lots of vegetables, and 3 lbs. of turkey breasts.
I got home, and the smell of the cooking turkey was really strong. So I started talking to the ghost. I unwrapped the turkey and started prepping it.
The roast turkey smell went away almost immediately.
So I put the turkey in the oven (in an oven bag), and I was suddenly assailed with the smell of rosemary. Since I didn't have rosemary, I told the ghost that since I hadn't originally planned on any of the cooking, that I was using what I had, and to suck it up.
It seems to have worked.
Apparently I'm not alone this thanksgiving.
