I was just thinking this is only the second Thanksgiving in years that you and I can’t have this conversation face to face. Wish I could be there for it bro.

Dude. If I can weigh in here… you are seriously overstating and dramatizing the event. And honestly, the cousins don’t seem to be terribly shocked about political preferences, especially Walker. As for “dressing up” it comes down to simply showing respect. If I go somewhere that has a dress code (ie: MCC), if I attend I will respect the hosts enough to dress as requested or I simply won’t go. Just like I would respect the dress request for a party, wedding, etc. It all comes down to basic consideration for the people you’re with. If you wish they’d all go to hell, then just don’t come.
Try being thankful that you have plenty of food and lots of family that want to share it with you.
I don’t see you giving money to crack addicts or even volunteering. Just my two cents…

Fair enough. Walker and Hall are pretty awesome but, it’s mostly the rest of them. They never really seem interested except for the brief moment we have a family get together. It just bothers me. Do I give money to homeless crack addicts? When I can. Then again you don’t see me spending 300 bucks on a pair of jeans or throwing a laptop across the room cuz I’m mad and can buy another. When I wrote all that I was also in a really bad mood and I actually did think, what if next year we all forgo the Thanksgiving dinner and all instead go volunteer at a homeless shelter dinner. I mean all of us. I’d be down.

The Sister-High fives. Turning your two cents into twenties. Add brilliant at devil’s advocacy (except for the fact that you agree w/ what you are saying) to your long list of talents, job descritions, and accomplishments. Good perspective KG!
