Ah, Thanksgiving… that special time of year where we traditionally congregate in the company of our loved ones, fill our faces with stuffing and turkey meat, and take time to acknowledge that for which we are most thankful. However, some years aren’t so traditional, and sometimes we may find ourselves in the company of only a single loved one, or even alone, and we just may or may not be thankful for a goddamn thing. In these less traditional lean years, oftentimes we find ourselves focusing instead on the things we don’t have: the loves lost, the lives ruined, the opportunities wasted– the truly good things in our lives we let slip through our fingers only to be lost forever.
So this holiday I’m spending Thanksgiving with my favorite kind of turkey:
Gobble gobble gobble.
