Covid cases are going through the roof everywhere, 45 still hasn’t conceded, but fuck it, you made it to another Friday and that is something these days. JOB WELL DONE, PEOPLE!
We’re just under 2 weeks to Thanksgiving. Given that our usual gathering is just me & my brother, I know it’s easy for me to say stay home and don’t travel – BUT STAY HOME AND DON’T TRAVEL.
I know holidays without everyone can suck. My Dad was in the Navy and deployed for a lot of holidays. Do an awkward Zoom gathering this year – and plan for a kickass post-vaccination random Saturday Thanksgiving next year. Why not Turkey and stuffing in August?
And no matter how much you love your family, let’s be honest – travel for Turkey Day SUCKS SO HARD. This is the one year you can legitimately opt out of that! (I did that travel nightmare once. Never again.)
Bonus of doing your own Thanksgiving? You get to call the culinary shots! Hate green bean casserole? Off the menu. Want nothing but stuffing and gravy? BRING ON THE STOVE TOP! Want to eat an entire pumpkin pie with two cans of Reddi Whip on top? You do you, boo.
The bottom line is – you don’t want to catch this monster, and you don’t want to spread it.
I want you to be able to actually live to be able to look back and say, “Wow, Thanksgiving 2020 sure was weird.”
