I do it every year, even if I think its a stupid holiday. I do it because regardless, I get my friends and fam over here, we eat, drink, are merry….last year I had lost a bet and was supposed to wear a skirt, so being me, I cooked and served in combat boots, an army spec. ops sweater, and…a kilt. My hair looked amazing thou, very Law and Order. For me, it is about good friends, family, food, football, and well, enjoyment. All other shit aside. I cook, the men clean :).
But I DO like to think about what I am thankful for, and ya know, I have some things. Infernal Spine aside, I am healthy. For the most part, more than many. I HAVE good friends, and an AMAZING family. I am thankful for my artistic abilities, and the roof over my head, and my mean streak. I am thankful I love music and love to be thankful that my parents introduced me to everything from MoTown to Country Western. I am thankful Chicago Exists, same goes for West VA.
I EVEN took the chainsaw outta my kitchen this year….
