There seems to be a common theme running through everyone’s posts today. Are you guys celebrating something called Thanksgiving over there? Just kidding, I know you are, but in case you don’t know, we don’t
suffer celebrate Thanksgiving over here.
That doesn’t mean we aren’t thankful, why every year I say out loud "Thank God we don’t have Thanksgiving!" I’m constantly amazed by the bloggers who read OUAB, everyone seems to have a loving, extended family (actually, half of you are in the same one!), that’s something I truly envy.
So for those of you who don’t think of the other side of the coin, let’s put it this way…The majority (and I’m speaking statistically here) of families don’t have a loving harmonious environment, and in fact, a good many families would have no contact with the other members if it weren’t for the fact that they all swam in the same gene pool.
So here’s a thought…Let’s get a bunch of people who really don’t care all that much for each other’s company, place massive expectations on them, make them all share each other’s space and to add to the excitement, add copious amounts of alcohol. Fuck me! I just described Big Brother. Unfortunately you can’t vote out your mother.
So yeah, we’re thankful, thankful that we only have to do it a Christmas.
We thank god that this guy belongs to you, and not us.
