I had planned to write this post earlier in the week, when I was alert and eager. Naturally I procrastinated and now end up working on it the night of Thanksgiving. This is not the best way to blog, or do anything really. After hours of consuming food, alcohol and tryptophan, my body only wants to be asleep. Or at least in some semiconscious state while a movie plays on the television. So this Friday I will give thanks for three things, a tradition that will henceforth be known as the Three Thankses Given After Thanksgiving of Cocky & Rude.
Turkey is a great thing to be thankful for. I don’t know if it is the smell it makes while roasting or its delicious flavor, but turkey always makes me happy. At least until I’m tired of leftovers.
The best thing to pair a nicely cooked turkey is a lovely bottle of wine or more accurately three bottles of wine. I’m a sucker for any type but the best I had this year was a rather surprising Cranberry wine. It was a tad sweeter than I usually take my wine, but the tartness was amazing.
After sleeping off my wine and turkey, I’ll be happy that I am not stupid enough to go shopping on this day. I’m very thankful that I have the common sense to stay away from screaming crowds of women trying to get that last item. Every year I find the lust for day after Thanksgiving shopping more and more disconcerting.
So there you have my trytophanatical thankses, folks. What are you thankful for?
