My Facebook wall is splattered with posts bearing a Thanksgiving theme. My friends and contacts list are all listing the things they’re thankful for in their statuses. Well hey, it’s Thanksgiving and that’s what Thanksgiving is for.
I’m thankful for a lot of things – they range from the full gallon of milk in my fridge to the car that sits in my driveway. I’m also thankful for my family and for my one–eyed cat with thumbs. While I’m thankful for lots more, I’m also unthankful for a lot of things as well.
Is it a Thanksgiving rule that I can only be thankful, or is it okay to be unthankful for things too? Is it bad juju or Karma to be a little discontent? Is it not PC to have an unthankful Thanksgiving? I don’t know, but truth is I am unthankful for things during this Thanksgiving season — and EVERY Thanksgiving season if I’m really being honest about it.
Here they are! Feel free to list yours:
