A four-day weekend has engulfed the United States; and all over This Great Land of Ours fantasies involving turkey gravy and uninterrupted access to pie dance between our ears and beg the question “Can I get you anything else?”
And from sea to shining sea, people are leaning back in their chairs and saying, "You know, don't mind if I do..."
Welcome to Thanksgiving weekend, a chance to reconnect with friends, family, and, in extreme cases, the need for an elastic waistband.
Speaking of elastic, if I do what I plan to do and attempt the mythical “third helping” tomorrow, I’d like to switch my request to be entombed in a Tupperware container full of Buffalo wing sauce to one full of turkey gravy.
It’s just more festive.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. There’s much to be grateful for.
