Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I’m off to my parents’ house for the day. I hope everyone has a great day with their families. In Michigan, we have a tradition. We eat far too much, then fight over who gets the couch, then we all watch the Lions play, which makes us want to regurgitate the meal we just ate. Call it athletic bulimia.
Update: Well, scratch that idea. My parents just called to tell me not to come. Apparently the weather is worse down there than it is up here. We got about 6 inches of snow yesterday, with more on the way today. That alone is not a big deal, but we’re also getting gusts of wind at 40 mph, creating a lot of drifting and blowing and whiteouts. And they said it’s worse down there, where they’ve got almost a foot of snow already. So sadly, our family thanksgiving is cancelled. I pulled a turkey out of my freezer and I’m trying to speed defrost it, hoping to at least be able to do a dinner this evening for myself and my brother and his girls, or perhaps tomorrow. So what was going to be a nice day spent with family has turned into a boring day spent at home. Down with nature! Down with nature!
“I hate nature. Screw nature. Do you think nature cares that a grizzly bear…mauled my grandmother to death…and almost ruined our family vacation?”
Oh well. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone anyway. Enjoy the time with your families.
