...room for pie.
Thanksgiving is The Lifeguard's favourite holiday, for a reason.
No presents, no songs, no trees to decorate, and no garbage bags of crumpled-up wrapping paper. Just one big-ass turkey, trimmings, and pie. Lots of pie.
So, at this moment--two days post-holiday--The Lifeguard wants to mention a few of the things for which he is thankful:
Living in America. (Living in the United States, as well as the fabulous James Brown tune.)
The soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines who keep us safe. (Coastguardsmen, too.)
The Lifeguard's friends (and the people who actually visit this site). But, mainly, The Lifeguard's friends.
Janet Napolitano. A special thanks to you, Big Sis. You managed to unite America against the government in a way that no other single person could. (Oh, and thanks to Keith, who gave The Lifeguard a very thorough pat-down...and a lovely meal at P.F. Chang's.)
Off to make turkey omelets.
