Thanksgiving is that special time of year when we all take stock and consider the blessings in our lives.
And then we collectively go through the nightmare of getting together with our families to remind us how great every other day is!
At least, that's how our friends at Babble have it figured! They lay out some pretty good arguments for NOT doing the big family gathering:
If you do the smart thing and choose not to travel you might end up spending the day at your house. Which is totally preferable to being someone else's house guest but if family comes to stay at your house? The dishes, my God, the dishes.
Not to mention Uncle Jerry setting up camp in the bathroom and stink-bombing the whole house every morning. However, doing the dishes is a good reason to hide in the kitchen and sip off your hidden bottle of hootch.
Watch your football, I don't care. But you know how it goes: all the guys end up gathered around the TV screaming obscenities while the women cook everything. The dudes inhale the food in three minutes and then it's back to the TV while the women-folk clean up. God forbid you suggest they do a dish. "BUT THE GAAAAME, BABE! THE GAAAAME." Thanksgiving is SUCH a sexist holiday.
