Now I'm Thankful for My Elders
on November 23, 2011
With Black Friday Eve -- aka "Thanksgiving", in some circles -- approaching, I decided to get into the gobbler day spirit. It may not have the sugar-fueled mania of Halloween or the raw consumerist frenzy of Christmas, but I still found plenty of opportunity to get my turkey-themed freak on.
I'm always looking for something -- anything -- to liven up the Thanksgiving dinner experience. If I wanted to sit in a room staring at the family for four hours, I'd stage another intervention for Uncle Pete. Lord knows the last one didn't take.
So I picked up this game to play at the holiday table, after we're stuffed on stuffing. In the description, the makers suggest "a prize be offered to the official winner, such as candy, a plant, or a new Christmas decoration". Those don't sound much like 'prizes' to me -- we'll be playing for cold, hard Thanksgiving cash. That's how my family rolls.
Good thing, too. We played a practice round over the weekend, and I cleaned up. I scored eighty bucks and a gravy boat off of Grandma alone. And I've been practicing in the meantime. Assuming she's got any dough left by the time Thursday rolls around, this is going to be the best Thanksgiving EVER!
