By now the gorging of turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie should be hours behind us. Me? I just got done taking a shot of Pepto Bismol to quell the pains of pairing a slice of rum cake with a sliver of sweet potato pie as a late night snack. Yeah, it was good going in.
While some may be just waking up from a tryptophan induced coma, others are staggering bleary-eyed from store front to store front, fighting to complete gift lists via Black Friday deals. As expected, we already have a shopping meltdown where a woman pepper sprayed her fellow shoppers to keep them from the goods she wanted to buy. For the love of humanity, people.
Yesterday, we reflected on the simplicity of gratitude. Today, I am thankful for the gift of twisted humor. Humor will get us all through the stress and general madness that sometimes befalls the holiday season. Were you trapped at a table for Thanksgiving dinner with relatives you can’t stand? There is a cure for that. Are you icing any combat bruises from a day of shopping? There is a cure for that. Are you side-eying the holiday decorations you need to both dig out of the basement and put up? Yep, there is a cure for that.
I bring you a clip from the naughty, but honest, kids of South Park that makes me giggle each time I watch it. For them, being thankful sometimes boils down to the luck of not being stuck with what someone else has. Enjoy!
