The atmosphere in America is a bit unfriendly right now (too much C02, if you ask me). We don't need to drain the swamp, we just need to wait for it to evaporate due to global warming. But putting that aside, whether it's politically or environmentally, there are things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving, as we all know, is the national holiday for over-eaters, the one day a year Americans allow themselves to indulge... Hahahaha, I couldn't even type that with straight fingerz (due to a typo when I was writing this, "fingers" is spelled with a "z." It looked cool, so I left it.) Americans do that erryday, haha, we big! I think it has something to do with the day; Thursday. It rolls off the tongue like a hairball. I think Thanksgiving should be on a Monday. And this blog should come out on a Monday. Everyday should be Monday, or some variation, like Monday 1, Monday 2, Monday 3... that sort of thing. I'll call up the calendar people to discuss this and see what I can do.
My writing today is all over the place, similar to my food on Thanksgiving, which is all over the plate. What I'm trying to say this Thanksgiving is that there are things to be thankful for. You just have to put politics aside. Let's not even bring it up this week. I just want to see pictures of turkeys being brutally slaughtered and parade floats with Disney characters on it. That what Thanksgiving is to me. Don't even bring up that you're going to a march, unless it's a march up Fifth Avenue to Macy's.
Now, this might be controversial, but how about we be thankful that Mike Pence went to watch Hamilton at all? I'm not taking his side on any of his stances politically or socially, but maybe we shouldn't boo him the one time he steps into the theater to support the LGBTQ/Black/Hispanic/ethnic communities, and then afterward lecture him on what to do from now on. That's like knowing you don't like stuffing, going through the trouble of making stuffing and putting it into the turkey, cooking it, serving it to the entire family, enjoying eating it, and then being lectured afterwards about how you shouldn't cook it inside the bird because it's not sanitary and that from now on you need to think about everybody else. Its seems like a lot of berating for one night.
So this Thanksgiving, whether it's a cozy Friendsgiving or a big blowout where like even third cousins show up, remember that we are all people, and wouldn't it be nice if we treated each other that way? And always remember the true meaning of Thanksgiving: to sell massive amount of Christmas presents.
