Every time we have a get together with more than just a couple people, the cats hide out in the bedroom. Makes perfect sense, I guess. Cats are more introverted seeming and want to keep to themselves. I can relate a little. But once in a while they’ll come out of hiding to socialize. I don’t get cat behavior. They want what they want, when they want it.
However, on the topic of Thanksgiving, we recently took a spur of the moment trip to see Jim Jeffries perform at some casino in Palm Desert. It was well worth the trip because he is friggin’ hilarious. One of his bits at the show was to talk about Thanksgiving and the concept of “freedom”. Being an Australian, he started polling some Americans about the holiday. And what he learned was that we get to eat turkey, pumpkin pie, and watch football. Hah. As if we can’t do any of those things the rest of the year if we wanted to. That’s what freedom means.
