Of course, I educated Japanese elementary school kids about Thanksgiving.
The combination of holidays and arts and crafts is the most beautiful thing in teaching English as a Second Language.
But, I am feeling a little bummed that I will not be in Pittsburgh this long weekend. For some reason, I have this urge to be at the Saloon this Wednesday night, avoiding eye contact from some high school friends and desperately trying to make eye contact with others.
Even though I never really have fun at bars in Mt. Lebanon. I always just end up looking around the room and realizing I am wearing more clothing than about five girls combined. And I am the only one drinking whiskey and ginger ale while everyone else drinks Red Bull and vodka or Coors Light.
And last year Tim Jones was there.
BARF O RAMA!!!!!
So I will not feel that bad about things.
The last time I was abroad on T-day I was in Prague. And my academic adviser made a wonderful thanksgiving dinner.
Obviously, there was LOTS of red wine. No matter what happened in Prague there was always red wine.
Then I was drunk, and full of turkey and stuffing even though I was thousands of miles from North America.
Have fun this Thanksgiving as you question how much gin my dad really put in that fish house punch.
