Maybe I don't need a 'special' someone in my life, and I'm content being alone. And, as if I'm going to tell you about how I'm really doing in school. It consists of stress and crying. I don't need a lecture from you. In the end family can be a hassle. Sexist, homophobic, racist. They wonder why I don't talk to them.
I'm practically her target audience now, which I am fine with. I just can't fathom, why her parents have so little interest in it. But, they don't. I don't know. It's strange to me.
However, for the first time in weeks. You will have recipes I have made or more accurately witnessed made. I'm not really allowed in the kitchen on Thanksgiving. I know how to cook. I have some skill. But, no, I am not allowed in.
Usually I end up eating a box of Entemann's donuts until two o'clock when we have dinner. Is my family the only one who has Thanksgiving at two o'clock and calls it dinner. Do other people eat at a normal dinner time or is this is a normal practice. I don't understand.
Really the only thing I do for Thanksgiving is set the table, then I'm asked why I used the good dishes. Family I don't know. Maybe, because this shouldn't sit in the hutch all day and I was bored. I have no answer for you. I'm sorry.
Sometime in the day we usually end up playing card games. Euker mostly. That's one my family really gets into. It's interesting. Some of the men watch football (I gag thinking about it), we played Pictionary one time. Where I was informed that I was too competitive. I was not that competitive. I just wanted to win, and I was willing to do anything it took to win. So, maybe they were right.
It was a horrible day.
Have a good Thanksgiving this week. Don't burn anything. Remember I am here. You always have my recipes as back up. Also keep in mind that your family loves you and no matter how annoying they are. They really do just want what's best for you. Even, if they don't. It's only one day. You got this.
