So this Thursday is Thanksgiving b/k/a I forgot my pressure pills but I’m going to eat my back out day. Contrary to what the supermarket flyers (Seriously, I want to figure out a way to not get those things in my mailbox on Wednesday.) and television commercials say the holiday is about turkey day is supposed to be about it’s all about being grateful for the things you hold dear. (Sorry kids swag isn’t one of those.)
This won’t take long but I’ve had a rough year so I’m just going to shout out who and what I’m thankful for. I’m not going to cry.
I’m thankful for having been blessed with a loving and awesome mother for 34 years of my life. In my head I could’ve been a better son but she was at her apex of dope motherhoodness. [i] She was on it to the very end.
I’m thankful for the collections of nut jobs known as my family. Y’all ninjas came up big over the last few weeks and provided me with some much needed laughs in the meantime. From Fairfax (Please, please stand up) to Kuwait they held down the fort. Dale, I said this before but you’re a f***ing beast and what not.
I’m thankful for, Moneypenny. Motherf***ing Miss motherf***king Moneypenny. Thank you for being you, Sweets.
I’m thankful for the crew. Yep.
I’m thankful for another turkey day with the family (I’m especially thankful for a family that doesn’t blurt out new ninjaness like “Thanksgiving is a holiday of oppression.” during dinner. No one is here for that brother Malcolm so shut up and eat your turkey.) Yes, it will be different but it comes a time when you have to embrace the new normal.
What are y’all thankful for? Y’all have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
Vaya con Dios!
[i] Soooo not a word.
