Before I start, can I please bash AT&T for like 60 seconds? How in the wide wide world is AT&T practically the mother of all cellular networks but their internet is shitty? To even get to the page where I can write post on WordPress took me forever! Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Soundcloud, Recolor, blah blah blah! THEY ALL TOOK FOREVER TO LOAD!
Besides the difficulties that got brought me here, I wanted to talk about Thanksgiving and how much of a Universal holiday it is. Now with me being me, I cannot start off any discussion without a story, so let us begin.
It was 5AM and we just got off the tram, through the guard shack, and out the turnstiles. I was standing out from waiting on my buddy Eric when our old supervisor and her short boyfriend who terribly suffers from the Napoleon complex walked by. With fag clouds blowing I waved to her goodbye and she waved back, yelling “Happy Thanksgiving!” I replied yelling Happy Thanksgiving and you folks will not believe what this female said to me.
“You do celebrate Thanksgiving right?!”
What I’m trying to figure out is, what thought processes were going on in that little brain of hers that caused her to question whether or not I celebrated a holiday where the day after Native Americans were slaughtered and diseased ridden. Looking at the picture as a whole, Thanksgiving is literally a holiday where we give thanks. There’s nothing religious about it other than when people “bless” the food. Even then I’m still staring at the deviled eggs praying satan doesn’t find me.
Thanksgiving is a universal holiday that can be celebrated by anyone. Thanksgiving is just a simple event where people gather to give thanks to one another, eat food, and laugh. Thanksgiving is probably the most funniest holiday ever as well as the easiest becasue you don’t have to buy anyone gifts for anyone. For her to even question the fact whether or not I celebrate Thanksgiving is just silly.
I really can’t complain too much, she’s probably eating unseasoned chicken with canned cranberries and honey baked ham ordered online. Anyways, I wanted to remind everyone that we should all be thankful for the people who are around us, the love that we share, and the peace that we try to strive for. Even though a shooting broke out at a local park here in my city, we shouldn’t let such violence and evil distraught us from the true meaning of life which is love.
