I don’t know if you know this, but my honey M.C. Nugget and I will be apart during the Thanksgiving Holiday. I know, I know. Boo hop hoo. But don’t cry for me, beautiful Internet. It was my decision because I just couldn’t take the time off work to make the trip. Plus, I’ll be here with one of my sons and some very good friends, and IT’S ONLY A FEW DAYS, people.
So, looking back to this past weekend, it was really serendipitous more than anything else that I decided on Saturday night to make a mini-Thanksgiving feast for us. I happened upon the free-sample counter at Trader Joe’s on my way home on Friday, and they just so happened to be serving an oven roasted Turkey Breast, Stuffing with chicken sausage, turkey gravy and cranberry relish.
They caught me while I was hungry.
I bought the entire package of goods they were selling, as well a very nice bottle of white wine.
SUCKER OVER HERE.
But on Saturday as we were planning our evening, I decided to invite a gal-pal who lives in Los Angeles by herself, without any family, and she happily agreed. She also added to the feast (mashed potatoes, green beans and more wine).
So on Saturday evening, we prepared and ate more than we should, and drank some delicious wine.
THEN THE WIGS CAME OUT.
It started innocently enough. We were talking about taking advantage of the iceskating rink in Santa Monica, which is outdoors and open for a few months each year, even if it’s 80 degrees outside. We planned to go sometime in December and leave our mark on the place.
“We have to wear funky hats or something” our friend (who is a veteran Burning Man patron, and can’t seem to do anything without adding a little glitter) said.
“Hats? I’ve got hats. I’ve got WIGS too.”
So the hats and wigs came out, and THIS is how our Thanksgiving celebration became like Pulp Fiction.
Stay tuned for the Santa Monica Ice edition.
And have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
