Have a Happy Thanksgiving and Above All, Don't Talk Politics!
Good Day World!
Good morning! I hope your day goes well, and that you didn't have to go to work.
To my foreign readers, I know this isn't a holiday for you, but I still wish you happiness and hope.
Today, in America, holidays and merchandising go hand-in-hand. Black Friday sales automatically come to mind when you start thinking about Turkey Day.
Somewhere in Washington, fat white turkey's are being feted. In addition, two birds will be spared from being some one's Thanksgiving dinner.
Many families will make the mistake of talking politics over dinner. Don't do it!
Not only is this a good way to get an upset stomach, but it also drives a wedge between the conservative and liberal family members, especially in the Age of Trumpism.
The good news is you don't have to have turkey today. There's no turkey police patrolling homes. At least, not yet.
I know that some people don't like turkey.
Vegetarians for example.
So, if you want to have chow mein and waffles with strawberries on top, you can without fear of not being patriotic.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
