|I will make it a point to talk about guns.|
What with neither Mr. Big Food nor Miss M having to go to Starkvegas today, and our having finished up all of our shopping for tomorrow’s feast, our Thanksgiving weekend has begun. So let me take a few minutes to get some things on & off the table right now so we can all enjoy the remainder of our weekend.
1) We will be talking about guns this weekend. We may even shoot some guns.
2) As I was explaining to Missy yesterday, Thanksgiving is an American holiday– more than just a harvest feast we also remember the Pilgrims, Puritans and other souls who left the warm and comfy Old World to come to the New, where they had a greater measure of freedom. Unless your ideological bent is toward individual freedom and liberty and away from being told what to do, think, eat, etc., you can say whatever the heck you want but be prepared to meet with devastating resistance from those of us who value individual freedom, etc.
3) You loose points if you use the term “Black Friday.” In all of the English language, this is a phrase I abhor the most. Shopping for Christmas gifts for loved ones should– yes, should— be a warm, pleasurable experience. It is not a contact sport. Calling the day after Thanksgiving “Black Friday” is crass and I don’t like it.
4) The salad fork is the shorter of the two.
Good. Now, let’s enjoy the weekend!
