Happy Thanksgiving, Chump Nation! Have you started your turkey basting yet? I’ve got a 20-pound behemoth to prepare, so forgive the brevity of this post. Today, as promised, we’re going to do that traditional Thanksgiving thing of going around the table and saying what you are thankful for. (Yesterday we got to vent our spleens.)
I’ll begin. I’m grateful for all of you. Thanks for sharing your stories and helping all the newbie chumps who are just starting this suckfest. The Tuesday of Meh is out there! And while I can preach that over and over, I’m one voice. It’s a hell of a lot more convincing with a chorus of hundreds of thousands. (Two million unique visitors to the site, over 12 million page views… that’s a LOT of chumps.)
I’m thankful for my husband (who has a pathological love of turkey…. thus a 20-pound turkey for THREE people today), I’m thankful for my son (may he pick his towels off the floor today and wake up before noon), I’m thankful for my family (may we not discuss politics for the next 30 days), and I’m thankful for good health (squidgy middle-agedness notwithstanding).
A decade ago I was spending Thanksgiving with a cheater husband who had to run out the morning after Thanksgiving to another state to do an “errand.” All my family was visiting too. How’s that for a red flag? A couple days later — my first D-Day. (November 29, 2006)
I’ve come a LONG way since then. And so have you. Let’s give some thanks! Happy holidays!
