Yup…I ate it all…then… Americans go shopping…

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.
