Thanksgiving Day is a holiday set aside each year for giving thanks to God for blessings received during the year and is celebrated through feasting and prayer.
That’s what Wikipedia says.
For some maybe.
For me, it’s just another holiday to aggravate my family and see my mom gaze at my dad with the look of, “Why? Why did we have her first?”
To get this holiday weekend party started, I posted this on my FB wall last night:
And yeah. That was my status update: I am thankful for my family.
Therefore, people who don’t really know my family assumed THAT was my family.
(Though these people probably have more fun than my family because this family photo was taken at a Motley Crue concert.)
(Don’t ask how I know. I just do.)
(And any family that fist pumps together at a Crue concert is A-OK in my book.)
Before the 43rd comment, the story was we were having our T-Day at Denny’s because momma worked there.
(Which she doesn’t. But I kinda wish she did cause I love me some Denny’s breakfast.)
(I know it’s gross.)
Daddy was back on workers’ comp and I was reminded truck stops have moon pies.
(The folks are nicely retired and burning through my inheritance at this moment. No daddy’s were injured during the making of this FB crap.)
And I love how so many people just rolled with me.
I mean, totally went…right…along…with me.
Even mom and dad. They’re cool like that. They’ve put up with my shit for 42 years. THIS is nothing to them.
(When I was 16, I came home with the RIGHT SIDE OF MY HEAD SHAVED.)
(Uh, huh…they are thankful for stuff like this now. Piece of cake.)
Therefore, I was fed today. Nobody worry.
We prayed. Daddy made us all hold hands and say something we were thankful for.
I said I would be thankful for an iPhone 4S.
If I had one.
My sister gripped my left hand when I said that. Hard. I think because once again, I wasn’t being serious.
On another note, I always like to play games. Board games or such when the family is all together.
We didn’t today though. Not sure why. Probably because I knew I was walking a thin line after last night so I didn’t want to push it.
So, you get to play with me.
Scattergories. I love me some Scattergories.
1. Use the 1st letter of your name to answer each of the questions.
2. They must be real places, names, things!
3. No they don’t cause sometimes it’s more fun that way.
I’ll start. You copy/paste into the comments section and change the answers to yours.
Read the rules again.
And it may not be exactly like the board game, but you’re not sitting here with me. So, I gotta make it work.
Don’t be jacking this up. (Damn, turkey makes me bossy.)
Here we go. And think fast:
1. Something you step in: Cheese
2. TV Show Character: Cameron on Modern Family
C. An animal that bites: Cheetah
4. Mode of transportation: Covered Wagon
5. Something that melts: Carton of rocky road ice cream that I wish someone would bring me so it wouldn’t be melty
Humor me and just do it. Please.
And I don’t even say “please” to the family.
