I hope you are all enjoying this wonderful Thanksgiving as much as I am. Granted, I won’t enjoy the trademark delicious meal until a little later, but the morning and early afternoon of relaxing, drinking coffee and watching football has been great. And since I’m also up in my fantasy football week—which sounded nerdy even as I was typing it—everything is good.
This Thanksgiving, I have quite a lot to be thankful for. And since I need to post something before I slip into a food coma later—a self-induced food coma, at that—I figured what the heck? Why not list some of these things and ask readers to do the same?
So here we are. And before I begin, I have one request. If you read this article and have the time, please consider posting your own list in the comments section—we’ll say 10 things you have to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Thanks in advance to those of you who decide to join in!
This year, I am thankful…
- For my family, friends, health, employment and every other obligatory thing people normally say in this situation. Except I genuinely mean it, of course
- That Obama won the presidential election and Mitt Romney isn’t running the country. Then again, Mitt is still in the news and can’t even go to the movies with his wife without being hounded by the media, so it’s all relative.
- For the people who not only take the time to read my blog, but also share their views and cultivate new friendships. You folks truly are the best, and I’m not just saying that. I assure you it’s from the heart.
- To be old enough to have some wisdom—a little, at least—yet young enough to have my memories—which we all know won’t last forever.
- That Thanksgiving includes three great NFL football games and that for the moment, I am doing great in my weekly fantasy football game. I know, I know. That sounded nerdy as I was writing it.
- For my favorite television shows—including “Revolution,” “The Walking Dead” and “The Big Bang Theory”—and the fact that T.V. is the only entertainment I can really afford. Dang economy.
- To have my hair, and it is still growing like a weed. Some of my buddies were unfortunate enough to go bald in high school. More and more of them go bald everyday, as witnessed on Facebook and other social networking sites. I’m sure you all know exactly what I mean.
- For Black Friday specials that are also available online because honestly, I’m afraid to venture out on the busiest shopping day of the year. No offense, but those people are crazy!
- That Lindsay Lohan, Kim Kardashian or any other B-list, pseudo-celebrity hasn’t been given their own Thanksgiving special. We deserve at least one day’s break, don’t you think?
- For the end of this “what I’m thankful for” list. Now it’s your turn!
Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!
