I have a slight list of things about tomorrow. I'll open with a quirky comment that needs
repeated shared (yeah, it's that good), then I'll mention three other things.
I know people in many walks of life. Some are in the same areas of Profession, so this exchange may sound strange at first, just warning you...
A person in the field of Human Resources was telling me of a "quirky" exchange they had with a member of another HR group (different company altogether). The question had to do with part of one of the organization taking Friday off, with pay. After all, it's the day after Thanksgiving.
"Is the whole company getting the day off?"
"No. Just Management."
"Then they should be charged vacation or personal-time-off since it isn't a recognized day off for the entire company."
"They won't like that."
"But that is how it should be handled."
"Well, it wouldn't be so bad except Thanksgiving falls on a Thursday this year. So a lot of them were planning on taking Friday off as well. You know, long weekend."
???"...Thanksgiving falls on a Thursday THIS year"??? As opposed to WHAT day all the OTHER years?
Uh-huh...from a V.P. of H.R. Wonder who's company they will be overseeing next year?
Three traditional things to remember to do on Thanksgiving:
One; Pig out. On Thanksgiving, most people in the spirit of being grateful for all they have; family, friends, employment, health, stability, so on and so forth, will feast out like no other time of the year. Then
suffer enjoy leftovers till Christmas (or whatever the next particular holiday it is you celebrate), then start over. May you enjoy Wait-Watchers after New Year. (check your local relatives)
Two; FOOTBALL!! What better way to enjoy being bloated and miserable after crawling from the table than to watch a killer ball game. Maybe more than one if you pay the equally bloated and miserable price for the special channels. But it's worth it, right? (check your local Analog/Digital Networks, Providers, Dish Networks, Cable Companies, IP sites,...)
Three; And here, even if you are lacking on the other two, is a must have happening...listening to Arlo Guthrie's "Alice's Restaurant". It's been a tradition on Thanksgiving for a LOOOOOOONG time. Introduce the next generation to the satire of the time and enjoy a great, funny story. The original played on the radio stations is still the best (check local listings and call your favorite station to see 1.) are they going to play it, 2.) when are they going to play it, and 3.) if they aren't, find out why and fix it. then listen to it). If you are unfortunate enough to have missed it, or if it isn't available in your area (some areas in the desert, Lunar sites, and Mars are still not covered) just hit the link above and check out a live version (40 years older but still good and with some background). It's a great story.
Traditions happen (most times)
