I'm thankful for the idea of Thanksgiving.
I'm not a fan of the big holiday meal. The best Thanksgiving meal we EVER had was in Breckenridge at a pizza place called Eric's. If I had my druthers, I'd have pizza for Thanksgiving and forget the bird. However, my sweet, sweet mother is a turkey lover and as long as she's sharing a holiday meal with us, it just won't be the same if she doesn't get the bird.
MOTH isn't a poultry fan at all. He says he doesn't like the DRY. That doesn't apply to me anyway, 'cause my bird is far from dry. He doesn't like the stringy. That I get. I don't either. I really despise meat that is on the bone. It willies me out. That's all. I'm all for a good portion of protein. I just prefer it to be without the infrastructure.
But I AM thankful for the IDEA of a holiday meal with family. I am thankful for the break from school and the money it takes to buy all the damn fixin's for a holiday meal.
