Good morning friends and Happy Thanksgiving. I hope everyone had a safe, jolly Thanksgiving Eve last night and I hope everyone is getting ready for the big feast today (or probably still sleeping considering it is 6:15 AM over there). I just wanted to wish everyone a happy and safe holiday. I originally was just going to go out to dinner tonight and not make a big deal of Thanksgiving, but after talking to some of the people in my building, a Thanksgiving feast is being conducted on the third floor. It is going to be a potluck style dinner (yes! I love potlucks) and everyone either chose what they wanted to bring or was assigned something. Well, Steve (the chef of the building) is bringing spiced pears, Chris is going to bring a bottle of wine and I was assigned…(drum roll , please) plates and napkins (womp, womp, womp). Nice…plates and napkins. Either everyone in the building knows that I can’t cook for shit, or I told them I was coming at the last-minute and really couldn’t think of anything else for me to contribute. I can see the conversation now:
Person A: “God dammit! Zac wants to come now…we all know his best dish is peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with Baked Lays and a glass of iced tea…what could we tell him to bring?”
Person B: “I got it! Plates and napkins! Perfect…he won’t be forced to cook anything and we won’t be forced to eat it!”
Of course this is probably not how it went down (or is it?) but I think of it this way: I don’t have to cook anything, I am spending minimal money and if no one brought plates and napkins, what would they eat off of? So, not that bad of a deal.
Anyway, I am really going to miss being at home for Thanksgiving, but hey…there is always next year. Once again, I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. Don’t eat too much turkey (eff that, eat as much turkey until it is time to unbutton the slacks) and let’s hope the Cowboys lose (highly unlikely). I will post pictures of our dinner a little later. I love you.
