When the best laid plans go astray, accidents can take their place and the outcome can be just as good – if not better. Just ask Jamal Hinton and Wanda Dench, total strangers who met seven years ago after a text message seeking Thanksgiving plans went wrong.

On Tuesday, Nov. 22, Hinton shared a photo standing beside Dench outside a Cheesecake Factory restaurant, revealing the two accidental friends are carrying on their viral tradition that began totally by chance.

“To answer all your questions, yes Thanksgiving year 7 is planned out! See you guys Thursday!” Hinton captioned the photo with turkey and black heart emojis.

The story started in 2016 when Dench accidentally sent a text to Hinton thinking she was texting her grandson. She asked him if he was coming over for Thanksgiving dinner.

Hinton, clearly confused, replied to the text asking who it was. Dench replied, “Your grandma.”

Hinton was still puzzled and asked for her to send him a picture to prove that it was really his grandma.

Dench sent a photo of herself and Hinton knew right away that she was not his grandma.

He replied, “Can I still get a plate tho?”

Dench said, “Of course you can. That’s what grandma’s do…feed everyone.”

The two have celebrated every Thanksgiving since.

In 2021, Hinton wrote, “We are all set for year 6! 🦃”
