Anybody ever seen a single guy’s thanksgiving meal?  It’s rad.  We’re not talking about a health-conscious meal, we’re talking about stuff that’s awesome to eat, but horrible for your body.  Today was that day at the Barnes residence.  Butter & meats baked inside of other meats.  Lots of gravy, lots of starches, lots of labored breathing, lots of napping & lounging.  And after a few hours, the pie will come out, on the TV will be some movie with Jimmie Stewart, and on our faces will be some look of either solid contentment, or some concern for the cholesterol intake of the day.

On an unrelated note, I can no longer feel my feet.  Either I ate too much and now my pants are cutting off circulation, or I had one too many spoons of mashed potatos.  Maybe both, actually.
