What food do you look forward to most at Thanksgiving dinner?
Stovetop stuffing. I like to overdo it on the carbs. Stovetop stuffing, potatoes and gravy. If that’s all Thanksgiving was, I’d be a happy camper.
(He does also specify that the stuffing MUST be Stovetop. One time I brought home an off-brand stuffing and he was not pleased. He’s actually a really picker eater.)
Do you ever go shopping on Black Friday?
Heck no. Well, no but yes. I physically don’t go out for Black Friday sales because it’s dumb. Sometimes there are better deals prior to Black Friday. But if I do go shopping on Black Friday, it’s online. They have pretty good online sales. Who wants to get up at midnight? It’s like a midnight movie premiere. Who wants to stand in line for 3 hours to save money when you can get it at the same price later?
(I find all his talk of sales hilarious. This is the man who absolutely refuses to download the Cartwheel app or use ebates even though I gave him my log-in information and said all he has to do is one extra click in order to get cash back.)
What’s your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?
Napping. Or watching football.
There’s football on Thanksgiving?! No!!
Umm, yeah, there’s always football on Thanksgiving.
(I give a forlorn look.)
…but we don’t have to watch it.
Yeah, growing up though, we’d always put the game on, whoever was playing.
(And then I feel guilty for hating football when it means a lot to him. I’ll probably let him watch it now.)
But definitely naps more. Naps kick arse.
Do you travel for the Thanksgiving holiday or stay close to home?
If we go anywhere, it’s to Benson. But it’s really up in the air. Christmas is better. I don’t make Thanksgiving a huge deal.
What are you most thankful for this year?
Good. (I chortle)
I’m being cereal (for awhile, our nephew thought that serious was pronounced cereal, so we sometimes still say that). I’m thankful for you. And our health.
