I’m sure if food wasn’t involved, you wouldn’t give a shit. ;)
And if massive turkey slaughter wasn’t, perhaps I’d care more.
But despite everything, I’m glad that for one day I can see facebook posts of people thinking about the good things in their lives instead of complaining about petty problems. Do I fall into that category? I don’t know. But hell, I’m thankful for every day that I’m alive and get to spend with the people that I love. I’m thankful for music and literature and beauty and everything else that enriches my time on Earth.
But I don’t think that we should wait until Thanksgiving to let everybody in our lives know that they are important, and spend the other 364 days of the year complaining. We should carry all the “I am thankful for” facebook posts everywhere we go. Life (especially the life of someone who has the privilege of complaining on facebook) isn’t so bad. But these are the only one we’re getting. So let us drop the pettiness and think a little more about the good, rather than becoming preoccupied with the little annoyances we have to face.
Have a wonderful day stuffing yourselves then feeling guilty and taking a nap. I’ll be with mah hoes tonight, hopefully.
