Thanksgiving preparation

in response to Full Frontal “Tips for Talking Politics at Thanksgiving”

I began my Thanksgiving preparation months ago, by consulting an orthopedic surgeon. I have been planning for this Thanksgiving by developing osteoarthritis for twenty years.

He scheduled me for the second of two knee replacement surgeries a week ago Wednesday. I will be only a week plus two days post op tomorrow.

When I get tired of hearing the blessings of Trump, I will grab my knee, scream in pain, and Carol will lead me, hunched over on my walker, to the car. Then she will return for leftovers to make them pay for the pain they caused me.
