This is the DAY where belt loops will be busted, t-shirts will be stretched out, and liver’s will be ANNIHILATED! This is the day where we get to spend time with our family members, even the crazy ones, who remind us there isn’t enough liquor in the world that can help us deal with them.
This day that I am talking about is called…..THANKSGIVING! Yes, Thanksgiving; that time of year where you gather around a table filled with various dishes made by various family members, only to listen to your Aunt Alice talk about her third divorce in the past five years. It’s that time of year where your Uncle Rodger sits next to you on the couch during the football game, and tells you for the UMPTEENTH TIME that he could have played professionally if it wasn’t for his hip.
But in all seriousness; I love Thanksgiving. This is the time of year where we get the chance to spend time with the ones we love. We get to catch up on how our family members have been doing over the past year, share stories to get us in good spirits, and be thankful for what we have been given this past year.
(Speaking of spirits, some of us will probably drink until we stink. But I digress…….)
To close out this article, I want to say that I hope you and your entire family have a Happy Thanksgiving. And with that, I will leave you with these three bits of “drunken” wisdom;
- Cherish these moments; because you don’t get days like these that often.
- Forget about that diet for this one night. It won’t kill you to dive into some mashed potatoes and stuffing.
- DON’T GO SHOPPING! You don’t need any of that materialistic bullshit today! Let the people at the stores spend some time with their families.
