A lot to be thankful for…

Today is the day we in America stuff our faces with traditional food to celebrate Thanksgiving. Basically it’s a day to give thanks for all of the wonderful things in life we have. I’ve done that today, and have had a great day with my family. But, instead of being sappy here, and relating that story, I thought I would tell you a more entertaining one.

It’s a story from my college days. I worked overnights for a radio station, and I got off of work at 6AM. I went to a 24 hour grocery store and purchased two items for my Thanksgiving day celebration. A Pumpkin Pie, and a package of condoms. I went up to the counter with a sweet little old lady. She rang me up, and looked rather embarrased at my purchase. Sensing the situation, I looked her straight in the eye and said ‘I’ve got a LOT to be thankful for’ πŸ™‚
