My Day of Thanksgiving

Here’s how I’ll spend my day.

Wake up and doom scroll

Ask myself, “how is it already Thanksgiving?”

Skip coffee and have a mimosa

Watch the parade

Try to not feel bad about being alone

Have another mimosa

Watch football

Scroll Instagram to see how everyone is spending their Thanksgivings

Open a bottle of wine

Order takeout

Watch Christmas movies to feel something

Avoid calls from family

Open more wine

Return calls to family

Guzzle wine

Eat the leftovers from takeout I was going to save for tomorrow

Fall asleep watching Christmas movies realizing I’ll do this all again on Christmas day

Happy Thanksgiving
