Thanks, But No Thanks

I am tired of Thanksgiving.

In the past two days, I have had not one, not two, but three Thanksgiving meals.

I do not like cranberries.  I do not like yams, or sweet potatoes, or mashed potatoes, or beets.  I do not particularly like turkey.  Stuffing is alright.

I do not like a tradition of overeating and obesity, of being guilted into eating, of making more food than you require and eating the same leftovers for a month.

I do not like having to drive long distances to eat food I don’t particularly like.  I do not like watching football.

Next year, let’s just have a nice meal at a restaurant.  No prep, no cleanup, and everyone can eat whatever they want.  And there won’t be much of a crowd.
