Gobble, gobble Thanksgiving time
The Kansas City Star
Gas prices have come down, Thanksgiving travel is supposed to be up and early Christmas shoppers will eagerly be able to get into stores a day early.
Somewhere in the process families and people will gather in homes for Norman Rockwell moments to give thanks and then gorge themselves on turkey all of the trimmings and endless football.
America, what a country!
The worry about weight will start after the holidays — not Thanksgiving but post New Year’s Day. That’s when the fitness center sales will be advertised along with gym equipment.
And they will all get used for a few weeks before people settle back into old habits. The trip to the gym will get sidelined, and the exercise equipment will become a convenient place to stack laundry waiting for wash day.
