But I don’t know what I’m whining about. The real victim in all this is Thanksgiving. I often feel bad for the holiday. It so often gets skipped over in this madness — swallowed up by clearance-priced shelves of orange-and-black knickknacks and the adrenaline-inducing Black Friday.
How can a turkey and a pilgrim win against those kinds of odds? The sad truth is they can’t. But given the spirit of their assigned holiday, I bet they’re thankful just to have a place on the shelf.
I bet there’s a lesson there, but I think I missed it. I was looking at the clearance section.
