Can you believe it's Thanksgiving already? I didn't really want Summer to be over, but since it is, might as well enjoy the Holiday Season. Thanksgiving is my third most favoritest Holiday, right after Christmas and my Birthday, which, in case you didn't know, is the 3rd of July, which is kinda like having two Holidays in one since it's right before the 4th of July..
"Okay David, you're rambling. Where are we going with this?"-Editor/Mom
Oh, right. Okay, so you're probably wondering what I'm doing with this pen. And no, I'm not writing my Christmas Wish List, although that'll be happening soon enough. You've gotta get your requests in early, cause all the best toys are in high demand. I'm pretty sure Santa plans his route on a First Come, First Serve basis, and you don't want him to run out of the funnest toys before he gets to your house.
"You're rambling again, David. And shouldn't we get through this Holiday before we start talking about the next one?"-Editor/Mom
Alright, alright. Where was I? Every year we put on a really fancy Thanksgiving Dinner at Free Dog for everybody that's staying with us while their families are away, cause it's important to make everyone feel at home. This year my Mom made up menus so all of the dogs could pre-order what they want for dinner. It's like a check-list. What a great idea!
So I figured I ought to order my meal ahead of time too, cause what if they feed all of the Boarders before me, and all the good stuff is gone? Imagine Thanksgiving with no turkey, no gravy, no carrots, no green beans or no squash...
I could hardly wait to lie down and fill out my order form. First on the list is Turkey. Yummy, I'll have two, maybe three helpings of that. Potatoes? Hmmmm, I don't care that much about them, but I like Carrots and Green Beans, so I'm thinking two servings of those, after all, veggies are good for you, right? I don't know what Cranberry Sauce is. What if I don't like it? I'm thinking if I put a question mark there my Mom might let me try it first. Finally, the best part, Gravy! I Love Gravy. I want tons of Gravy, smothered all over everything on my plate.
This is going to be delicious, I can hardly wait. But wait, there's something missing. What about Squash? I didn't think you were allowed to have Thanksgiving without Squash. It's the best thing next to Gravy and the Turkey. Aren't we having any Squash?
"Yes, we're having Squash! Don't panic, I just forgot to put it on the menu. But don't worry, I've already contacted everyone and told them to write it in if they want it."-Editor/Mom
Phew! This is going to be the best Thanksgiving Ever!
"You know that Thanksgiving isn't just about the food, don't you David? It's about taking the time with your loved ones to be thankful for everything you have. This would be a good time to tell us what you're thankful for, and wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving."-Editor/Mom
I'm thankful for my Mom and Auntie Jen, my Gator, all my Friends at Camp, and Holidays with Turkey Dinners with all the Fixin's, cause they're way better than the same old dry food I get every other day.
Happy Thanksgiving Everybody!
