Thanksgiving is ideally a day of family and feasting and maybe falling asleep on the futon while football flows from the functioning photobox.
I hope that you’ve got a good day planned, whether it’s spent with others or alone, whether it’ll be spent feasting or fasting, whether you watch football or pro wrestling or decide instead to watch a marathon of Friends on Netflix… or maybe just the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
For our part, we’re going over to the sister’s husband’s mother’s for dinner. They told me that I’m not in charge of dessert this year and, instead, I’m in charge of the cheese plate. So I got 4 different kinds of soft cheese, 3 kinds of medium hardness cheese, some gimungous grapes, some blackberries the size of your thumb, five kinds of crackers, and fig jelly.
We’ll bug the nephews by dabbing and using “modern” kids’ lingo, have a good (politics-free!) conversation with the rest of the family, do the yearly family photo thing, and then try to beg off a hair early and get home and burrow deep into the basement. And then, ideally, do nothing until we escape, bleary-eyed, on Monday. (Maybe have a gaming night with friends or something low-key like that but nothing so exciting as “going to Costco” or something like that.)
So… what’s on your docket?
