i sacrificed a dozen souls or so
painted myself in blood
and danced around the fire
My family performed the usual rituals
trying to bind me into the earth
they try every year.....
Just snorted beverage EVERYWHERE.
Usually Holidays are "Command Performances" no opting out unless you are deceased. This year was Absolutely Amazing! Family bugged out to visit far
flung members, Kids were all tied up with In-Law "command performances" So I escaped scot free!
Turkey was done before midnight, Yay Team Slackers!!! Had holiday minimalist dinner with friends. Topics of conversation went along the lines of, Gee!
It's 7pm....lets draw straws for who gets stuck making the green been casserole! Aw hell! vegetables are over rated anyways....Here, shuffling deck of
cards, low card has to make the gravy!
I made homemade cranberry sauce for the very first time and there were Oooo's an Ahhhhs as none of us knew when you par boiled cranberries they POP!
Sadly ALL of us are adults with years of cooking and festive parties behind us.
We have now renamed the event "The Slackers Ball" and are planning another for Christmas! Dinner to be served between 11pm and Midnight, the laziest
cook will be awarded a prize.IE you have between noon and 11pm to procrastinate making anything edible. Awards will also be given for the most ugly
mismatched loungwear outfit!
This years winner was sporting a pink camo John Deer sweatshirt and absolutely FUGLY plaid lounge pants accessorized by halloween skeleton socks and
One stray cat and possum were treated to a warm dinner plate of shrimp, turkey and wet food, topped with gravy.
Life stopped briefly at 6pm as Arlo Guthries "Alices Restaurant" played on the radio.
Prayers were put up for those at Standing Rock, and all Water Walkers.
All in all one of the BEST holiday days I've ever had.
