Things Learned During Thanksgiving
Just a little list of things learned during Thanksgiving weekend... - Men and women are very different. (I already knew this; it was just reaffirmed.) - Traditions can be broken. I would like to officially add green bean casserole to the traditional Thanksgiving menu. (Not that I have a say on the Thanksgiving menu.) - You can actually get through Thanksgiving day without watching football. No, really. You can. I'm as stunned as you are. - Rooms with concrete floors really echo. - People really do want to beat me at things just because I'm me. I thought this was all fabricated by Kris as a creative piece of trash talk during Fantasy Football. Playing Settlers of Catan really hammered it home. Kelsee says it's because I'm smug. Whatever. It's strangely satisfying. - The one day I can eat as much as I want and not feel guilty, and I can barely finish off a second helping. Is it the stuffing expanding in my stomach? The anticipation of the event? Some strange magical spell cast upon the food? - Gut stuffing. Gut gravy. How can it be thanksgiving without it? (Those are my terms for versions of those food items laced with giblets.) Mmmm... - Don't buy a "prepared" Thanksgiving dinner from Kroger's deli. Just make your own. It's not that hard. Trust me. - BYU's got a good football team this year. And a good basketball team, too. - I love football. I even thought it was replacing basketball as my sport of choice to watch. And then basketball season started, and I realized every thing was as it should be. Football is just a pleasant diversion until basketball season starts.
