Yes, indeed, yesterday, Thanksgiving Day in the United States, we ate as if almost there is not going to be any more food for the rest of the year. And, yes, I ate it all. No dessert, though. My gracious hostess offered some pie, but I said no. Where was my brain when I said no. Later I regretted that, because once the damage/pleasure of eating that delicious meal, what gives. A few thousand calories more or less is not going to hurt anyone. So dessert will have to wait for after Christmas dinner. Not too many days to go.
I spent Thanksgiving Day with my lovely family, and boy, did they have a full spread. The very traditional Thanksgiving Day meal. Everything and anything. Lovely time. I even discussed some hair spray issues with my grandchildren and one of their cousins. Who knew! They recommended to me which ones to avoid and which ones to use if I wanted extra hold. I should have asked them for shampoo issues. Next time.
No, I did not go shopping at Midnight. No way! I waited until after my morning walk, got my car keys and there I went. I looked as if I had just rolled out of bed and went out. I could tell by the looks I was getting. No makeup, a baseball cap to cover that I had not yet combed my hair, and my sunglasses. Who cares! Some stores were 50% off, the whole store! What’s going on? Either “they” are sticking it to us for the rest of the year, or things are questionable. I was not in a mood to ask them.
Got a nice little coat and some apples. No, apples were at their regular price. But I needed fiber in my daily diet. No…I am a very regular girl. Thank you very much.
Well…there you have it…another Thanksgiving Day down the pipes…now looking forward to shopping for…Christmas. Do you think I may find some stores at 75% off, or maybe, if I am lucky, they’ll give it to me for free. This is America, anything goes.
Your Happy Contessa

Ha! That is funny! If the markdowns are so high – they must be making a bundle at full price!
Yup! I always had that feeling…one of these days “they” will pay us to take the stuff away. Coming soon to a store near you.
