What I’m Thankful For

Happy Thanksgiving!!!! Today is the best holiday of the year- bar none. It’s about delicious food, getting drunk with your family, and napping for 4 hours on your couch while everyone else does the dishes. It’s the start to the holiday season and all the Christmas decorations, movies, songs, and that stuff that makes you warm and fuzzy.

It’s also the time to think about what we’re thankful for. If you’re lucky enough to be reading this blog, you have a lot to be thankful for. Access to Internet. Eyeballs that work. The privilege of absorbing the words of the distinctive voice of this nation, a generational talent that will probably be rich and famous very soon (that’s me btw)

As the Content King, I have a lot to be thankful for myself. Obviously my thick head of hair and broad shoulders are nice. And sure, it’s pretty cool that like millions of people look up to me and women lust for my touch. And of course, I have a wonderful family that’s funny, smart, kind, and all around great people. How else would I have turned out this well?

But, we all knew that. Here’s what I’m really thankful for….
