I hate Thanksgiving. I know I am the only person that does but let me explain. I am allergic to pumpkin and turkey so that takes out the majority of the food. I don’t like green food or sweet potatoes. And what the hell is cranberry jelly? Ugh. I hate eating gross food for a holiday that everyone raves about. Don’t get me wrong I do enjoy giving thanks, but why the food… Every year I threaten to bring my own food and some day I will.
Another reason I don’t like Thanksgiving is family. Now I am sure some of you agreed with that. Haha. Everyone in my family gets divorced, I mean everyone. So holidays have always been crazy because no one wants to celebrate on a different day. After 22 years of holiday chaos I am pretty used to it. But one of the things I don’t like about Thanksgiving is that extended family comes into town. Some of my extended family is pretty cool so I don’t care, but there is a certain great aunt and uncle that always treat me and my sisters like shit. They act like we are stupid and don’t remember them. Well this year was no different.
When I arrived at my Grandma’s house with my little sisters, they were in the process of showing my aunt this Youtube video about Millennials. Then after the video they started to talk about how bad my generation is and how scary we are. I will admit we are a very interesting generation but still I know that they were doing this because they were trying to subtly hint to my dad about me. Anyways I don’t like to start fights so I pretended to ignore them. Then it was time to eat, so I went with my sisters into the dining room where their daughter had been sitting for about 5 minutes. As I went around to my seat I noticed that not only had she dished up her plate before everyone else was even seated but she had also started eating. NOT COOL!!! Mind you she is in her 50’s. Here her parents are in the other room talking about how entitled my generation is and their own daughter was in the other room stuffing her face. I was pretty offended.
But the whole dinner thing gave me a great idea on the direction for my blog… I am going to blog about life as a millennial, because apparently that is all my generation does. So I hope you all enjoy the new direction of the blog.
