Thanksgiving Day Schedule

  1. Wake up and smell the coffee
  2. Drink some
  3. Walk to Starbucks with the girlfriend and the five dogs and drink more coffee
  4. Get a pumpkin scone (i’m very festive)
  5. Come home and wander around for two hours
  6. Go to Mom’s house with the girlfriend for an intimate family gathering of 25
  7. Eat a lot of turkey and fixins
  8. Watch football
  9. Fall asleep spread eagle on the floor with at least one, possibly two jeans buttons undone (for some reason this amuses the girlfriend)
  10. Repeat steps 7-9
  11. Go home

There are miscellaneous items interspersed between steps 7-9 such as:

  • Talk real loud hoping someone can hear you over the din and will actually listen to what you have to say
  • Ask Dad several times over to change the tv from the SciFi channel back to the football game
  • Watch one or two family members get a little more tipsy than they said they would
  • Try NOT to think about work
  • Marvel at how cute my little niece is
  • Feel lucky to have a really great family

Be thankful….or in the immortal words of Elmer Fudd “Be vewy, vewy, thankfew.”

  1. You repeat 7-9? I haven’t ever been able to do that. It’s like when I’m hungover. The last thing I want is another beer.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
