I So Poo-Poo'd It.

In an alternate universe, we made it to our departing flight on time and all was right with the world. There wasn't 2+ hours of traffic on 95N and no one was frantically running full throttle to make the flight when she did a wildly ungraceful faceplant outside of airport security, spilling the contents of her overnight bag and watching with her chin on the cold, cold tile as all of her belongings sliiiiiid in every which direction along the airport floor, while her name was being announced over the public address system.

In this alternate universe, we had an absolutely wonderful and drama-free Thanksgiving; no one had to take an emergency flight home before they got their turkey. Everyone slept well atop mattresses that didn't have the support of soggy oatmeal and there was much joy and seemingly endless laughter.

Suppose that's what I get for bitching last week about how crazy this year has been.

This is why every year, on Thanksgiving, I watch "Home For the Holidays." I sympathize as Holly Hunter's character's parents drive her to light a joint in the bathroom singing to herself "candy...I call my sugar, candy..."

Today's verification word: uiwox, the fuzzy little creatures that are the doppelgangers on an alternate version of the planet Endor

as long as you didn't do anything stupid (e.g., take your sweet and sensitive singaporean gf to see borat or make an illegal uturn through a red light in front of a cop in the pouring rain).....
