Signs You May Have Overdone It on Thanksgiving


I overate on Thanksgiving, as usual.  If you're not sure, here are some of the signs...

  • You ate the turkey, the pop-up thermometer and the plastic net.
  • All your silverware is worn down to tiny stumps.
  • Scientists are reporting a slight but measurable shift in the earth's axis.
  • Paramedics brought in the Jaws of Life to pry you out of your chair.
  • Your "Gravy Boat" seats 12!
  • You ate enough potatoes to cause a shortage... in Idaho.
  • Your morning jog registered a 3.9 on the Richter Scale.
  • Pricking your finger for cholesterol screening only yielded gravy.
  • The scale at the health food store registered "Error - 1 person only please" when you put in a quarter.  When you pressed continue, it charged you a buck and a half.
  • Nine guys tied ropes to you and tried to float you in the Macy's Parade.
  • Your relatives want to go home, but they're stuck in your gravitational field.
  • Representatives from the Butterball Hall of Fame called... twice.

Endangered Gorilla Killed after Child Falls into Habitat

One of this week’s trending topics on Facebook and twitter was a tragic story. A small boy fell into the gorilla habitat at the Cincinnati Zoo. Minutes later the western lowlands gorilla, a critically endangered species, was shot and killed by zoo personnel.
A tragic story has been made even more tragic through misinformation and misguided opinion on social media.

I know I did. “If that were my child I would…” I’ll let you complete the sentence in condescending judgment. 
Parents, however, understand. We’ve all been there. Every …
