Happy thanksgiving

Here are my guidelines for a successful Thanksgiving gathering:

  • Eat too much
  • Don’t eat too much
  • Try a bit of everything
  • Ignore the nephew who eats with his mouth open
  • When you go around the table sharing what you’re thankful for, don’t say “Prozac”
  • Tolerate Uncle Ted’s stories about body parts you’d rather not hear about
  • Smile nicely at the rabid vegan niece who wants to educate everyone about the realities of turkey farming
  • If asked when you’ll write a real book, respond “When will you?”

Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and for those who don’t celebrate the day, remember the weekend is almost upon us.

LOL!! I love your guidelines! Thanks for the laugh, Janet. Please, have a very Happy Thanksgiving and if someone does ask you when you’re going to write a ‘real’ book, send ’em to me and I’ll set ’em straight. xoxo

Janet, you are beyond priceless and frankly a bit frightening. That sounds so much like our family Thanksgiving dinners as to be uncanny!
