Talk about run-on sentences. But hey, anything goes at Midlife Margaritas Inc.,. The short answer is IDK and IDK. (I don’t know for those of you not up on the hip language skills I have accrued over the years). At least I didn’t use the F word. Yet.
It’s Covid and Flu season now so what else could possibly go wrong? If you were looking to avoid family for the holidays, this is your year my friends! You don’t want Grandma or Pops to catch anything or cousin Ginny’s new baby or even drunk uncle James? Wait, James is always so liquored up he probably won’t catch anything due to a pickled immune system. So without extended family you won’t have to cook much or at all, or clean up or even get out of your Pj’s this year! (Choir of Angels singing the Halleluiah Chorus).
We can’t watch “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” because it’s only on Apple TV now (rat bastards). So will football be on? No Macy’s parade. Dang Y’all! What are we to do? One thing we won’t do is break out the Monopoly game. If you are already fighting about politics in your house, you don’t want to have it all end with Monopoly money being thrown all over the house and your kids screaming about how you are a dirty crook slumlord on Park Avenue.
The other big story will be when we will crown the new
king President or will they still be counting ballots like chickens pecking on bird seed in the backyard at a pace slower than a snail race. Either way we are all screwed. Now is the time to start hoarding toilet paper, water and baby wipes again. What a time to be alive! UPDATE: Biden wins. Trump starts lawsuits and recounting. It was close all around. Glad I didn’t play that drinking game!
So what do you serve for a small, at home Thanksgiving meal? Well, Bojangles (fried chicken) will be open. They don’t ever close. Get your sweet tea and dirty rice and for dessert those wonderful BoBerry biscuits! Sure, it’s not your Grandma’s chocolate cake but they’ll work fine for a Covid holiday. Then everyone can go to the backyard and shoot at the squirrels for kicks and giggles. Except drunk uncle James. He’s not allowed to have a firearm due to some “trouble” he had back in the 70’s. (The squirrel thing was a joke. Don’t come @ me!)
Sound like a total sh*tshow? Wait till Christmas! So go ahead and put up the Christmas tree. Prep for a long winter and hopefully Santa will be able to make it to your house if the elves don’t get the Covid. If they do, then all bets are off and we are back to where we started. Can reindeers get Covid? That’s another blog post for later.
Happy Thanksgiving friends! Here’s a great Thanksgiving Cocktail I highly recommend: Cranberry Champagne Cocktail: In a chilled Champagne flute add cranberry juice and a squeeze of lime. Top off the glass with Champagne. Garnish with 3 or 4 cranberries. Link: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/tyler-florence/cranberry-champagne-cocktail-recipe-1957530
