With Thanksgiving coming up this week, we’re all talking about what we’re thankful for. Yes, there are the traditional things such as good health and safety for our families, friends and pets. But this year I’m concentrating on the little things, the things I make a point of noticing and being thankful for every day throughout the year, like good cell phone service no matter which way I’m facing.
I’m thankful for a good hair day which, for me, means that the little bit of hair I had on my head yesterday is still there today.
I’m thankful that no State Police officer clocked me doing 85mph this morning on the Connecticut Thruway.
I’m grateful for my microwave. Now if they could only make it cook faster.
I’m very grateful for electricity. See previous comment.
I’m grateful that today I found where I hid the last box of Samoa cookies I bought from some Girl Scout months ago.
I give thanks that the new Twinkies will have a nutrition label. I can always use the laugh.
I give thanks that my car has heated seats because my seat isn’t heated sufficiently.
Forget American Express. At this time of year, I’m grateful I never have to leave home without thermal underwear.
I’m thankful that yesterday, for the very first time, I didn’t get on a subway in NYC going the wrong way.
I give a lot of thanks for toilet paper. Do I really need to explain that?
I’m grateful that while the powdered coffee creamer I use has the same half-life as Uranium, it hopefully won’t have the same lethal effect.
I’m thankful that Chanukah is eight days. It gives me seven extra days to buy stuff.
And finally, I give thanks that the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade won’t have a Vladimir Putin balloon.
