Thanksgiving Means Be Thankful, or Be a Turkey

This 2008, I'm thankful for a lot of things — good, bad and minuscule:
  • I'm thankful for Snickers bars with almonds, because that's a taste combo that I crave sometimes.
  • I'm thankful that most little kids see me as a grandfather figure, and not a spooky monster.
  • I'm thankful that I didn't grow up to be a proctologist (even though my mother would have wanted a doctor)
  • I'm thankful that I didn't (as I once thought about) pursue a career in professional wrestling — my figure wouldn't be very sightly in tights.
  • I'm thankful I live in a country where I have plenty to eat and DON'T have to eat brussels sprouts for any reason.
  • I'm thankful my neighbors don't have a pit bull or a barking, yelping or moaning dog.
  • I'm thankful the big fashion "must" is NOT wearing polka-dot ties.
  • I'm thankful leftovers (food) don't have a mind of their own and form a union which makes you eat them until they are all gone.
  • I'm thankful that football and basketball are in HD now, so I can see their goofy tattoos in such detail.
  • I'm thankful that Abraham's Onion Burgers is going to re-open on North Western (like I really need a greasy onion burger and fries).
  • I'm thankful for all my family, friends, God's love, the people who provide our safety (the troops in our Armed Forces, police officers, firemen, healthcare providers), and for America, the greatest country in the world.
  • I'm thankful most of all that you're reading my blog — yeah, this blog — and I hope your Thanksgiving was the best ever!
