Sometimes I honestly feel like I’m a walking bad holiday movie. You know the ones I’m talking about, too. The ones where everything that can go wrong, will. That’s my life. This morning on my way to work, someone’s arm caught hold of my headphones cord and pulled my phone out of my pocket. It landed in the tiny gap between the subway and the platform and very easily could have fallen through. Basically, I should not be allowed in public.
It’s no secret how much I love Thanksgiving, but with every big holiday comes a big risk for disaster. I’m already preparing myself for things that could go wrong considering there’s apparently some bad weather coming in, and I’m flying out tomorrow.
I’m really hoping these things don’t happen during Thanksgiving:
Your Favorite Dish Is Gone Before You Get It
You may think there are multiple bowls of mashed potatoes, but you could be wrong. By the time your favorite food reaches you, the bowl is empty and you're crying into a vat of gravy.
Your Pets Get Into The Food
True story: my dog ate half of our turkey one year. He literally got ON the counter. So. That was fun.
You Eat So Much You Think You're Going To Die
Regardless of if you're wearing stretchy pants, your stomach can only take in so much. You need to know your limits before you hit that awful food wall. You want to enjoy Thanksgiving without having to be rolled away from the table.
You Get Stuck At The Kids' Table
UGH. Thankfully we don't have a kids' table anymore, but I was the youngest in my family so I ALWAYS got shafted to the kids' table. It's terrible.
Something Catches On Fire
First of all, fire is scary. Second, fire is dangerous. Third, fire ruins food and mood. Make sure you don't leave that pie in the oven to the point of flames.
There's NO Dessert
This happened one year. Somehow there was no dessert. We forgot. No one brought it. I cried.
Fingers crossed this doesn't happen to anyone, but travel delays are absolutely the worst thing ever. You don't want to be stuck in the airport or on the road longer than you have to be in the first place.
