It’s Thanksgiving. Or, as the ResistanceLOL calls it “Memorize talking points so you can be an obnoxious automaton” Day. As someone who really hates turkey, I call it Thursday.
Well, I hate turkey except when it’s deep-fried turkey. That’s actually pretty tasty.
I used to have a turkey fryer. But do you have any idea how much oil you have to use to deep-fry a turkey? Sure, turkey is cheap. But buying the oil makes deep-fried turkey one of the most expensive foods on the planet.
Better to just buy a really expensive cut of beef.
Actually, for today’s Thanksgiving dinner I’ll be having a couple hardboiled eggs and Greek yogurt for dessert.
I got struck with the inevitable pre-holiday head cold. You probably guessed I wasn’t in top form since my posting has been sparse this week. With the stuffed up head, the sore throat, the incessant sneezures, the chills and sweats, and the late-night coughing fits, I’ve been a wreck since Monday.
And since my Mom was in the hospital last week and is still very weak, the last thing I want to do is spend the afternoon breathing my germs all over her.
So instead of heading out to Mom and Dad’s for Thanksgiving, I’m heading out to the living room couch where I will lie down with a dog on my legs and a cat on my stomach.
Wooo-hooo!!! Do I know how to party or what?
I thought I might watch the movies “Red Dragon” and “The Silence of the Lambs” if for no other reason than to be thankful that Hannibal Lecter isn’t cooking Thanksgiving dinner.
Who the hell knows what he stuffs his turkey with.
Any old how.
I hope all of you have a lovely Thanksgiving. Enjoy your family. And if you do have ResistanceLOL relatives who insist on turning Turkey Day into Jerky Day, make up a card table in the garage where they can glumly eat their tofurkey in peace.
Say, I bet this would make a great Christmas gift!
