Happy Thanksgiving from MCC!

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving!

Every chef’s least favorite part of the Thanksgiving experience: the customer complaints.

In the spirit of the American holiday, the management here at Midlife Crisis Crossover would like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving upon you ‘n’ yours, and to express our sincerest gratitude to You, the Viewers at Home. Thanks for stopping by. Thanks very much for your generous encouragement signals in all their varied forms. Danke schön for making this long-term hobby experiment enjoyable even when it’s not easy. And enjoy a Special Thanks during the end credits for just being You.

Whether you’re visiting loved ones, liked ones, or other ones, or opting out of the visiting experience altogether, may your celebratory meals be enjoyed in peace, love, harmony, and kindness in both spirit and tongue. May your gathering remain festive and filled with fellowship, and may it not turn into a flame war so atrocious that it earnsits own hashtag.

And don’t forget to thank the hard-working chef(s) and collaborators who made your Turkey Day feeding possible. Even if the turkey is a little dry, or the dinner rolls are a little overcooked, or they forgot to salt anything, or they think jellybeans are an acceptable substitute for stuffing, or they’re serving their homemade off-putting cranberry-rhubarb-coconut cobbler again, their generosity, diligence, and talents nonetheless deserve a round of recognition. After you’ve complimented them or handed them awards, then you can go fall asleep in their favorite recliner or on their living room rug. Cheers!

    • Wow, thanks, R.C.! Very kind of you. Your own contributions to that one site are always a welcome treat and I hope your day is spectacular and free of smug internet commentators with superiority complexes. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, except when there 100% is.

    Hope your holiday festivities provide lots of turkey sandwiches, turkey jerky, turkey kabobs, turkey cacciatore, or any variation of leftover bird you prefer. Looking forward to your traditional Black Friday Adventure Series.

    • Thanks, Honie! I’m working on a Black Friday game plan right, but now that stores are denying calendar science and insisting Friday is a full 48 hours long, I’m worried that the second 24 hours’ worth will be a peaceful yet dull non-spectacle. Updates as they occur!
