Thanksgiving

I have a question.

Does anybody out there actually enjoy thanksgiving?

You know, the dysfunctional family drama.

And shopping and cooking for days only to wolf down the food in minutes.

Or maybe in your house every body has to squirm in uncomfortable clothes while you labour at eating slowly.

Then laying on the couch in a food coma while college ” students” play football on TV.

Or maybe you go to the local fancy hotel, where the chef stands there in a toque carving the roast beef for you.

Count on hearing the phrase ” the stuffing is the best part” a lot.

Another quick question; does  anybody under  70 enjoy watching ” the thanksgiving Day-parade”?

And who alive today remembers the origins of this holiday?

Something about how the Indians felt sorry for the clueless pilgrims and showed them how to eat the local food

Because they brought their world view with them and couldn’t adapt until they were almost dead.

I bet the Indians would like a do over on that one.

And how everyone cant wait until daybreak for the ” biggest shopping day of the year” so they can waddle over to the mall and participate in in the other  american compulsive ritual; buying christmas presents which will be exchanged on the second biggest shopping day of the year; the day after christmas.

And having to eat turkey in every possible form for days afterwords.

By the end of the week its turkey daiquiris, turkey smoothies, and turkey flavored popcorn.

Count on seeing the annual “news” story on TV  with celebrities  “feeding the less advantaged”.

At least the poor folks get one meal. After the cameras are turned off, everyone wants them to go away.
