Family. You can't live with 'em, and you can't live without 'em. That's why Thanksgiving was really invented- get together, stuff your faces, and then hurry and leave so you can drive home before the L-tryptophan in the turkey kicks in and you get too sleepy.
We celebrated Thanksgiving Wilson style on Sunday. We have short tempers and shortcomings, but we have more laughs than either of those. My favorite quotes were-
- A miscommunication between Sam and I. He was talking about the football player, Manning, on the Patriots while I was busy preparing the candied yams. I thought he said, "That's why yamming is so dangerous." Really, he said Manning. The misinterpreted quote became the most quotable line of the night.
- Dad: The other night I watched a geology special on channel 9... Sam: Did it rock?
- While waiting for the family pictures- Sam: Are we ready yet? Because this is the longest I've had to pay attention.
