The Cool Kid is still new to the column writing game, but I know most columnists like to do a piece on or around Thanksgiving Day listing the things and people they are thankful for.
I guess it beats having to write a real column. And who am I to argue with tradition and sloth?
I’m thankful for Doggie Heaven, so Hoover can hike to his heart’s delight.
I’m thankful for Rick Nolte, who explained to me what a mulligan is. I don’t play golf, but I take mulligans.
I’m thankful that we read left to right and top to bottom. Frustrating more lot a be and, story or book a through get to longer much take would it otherwise.
I’m thankful Mrs. Cool Kid was so picky.
I’m thankful this riddle just popped into my head: What language do turkeys speak? The answer is below.
I’m thankful for you, O Best Ones. But those other guys, the riff-raff? Not so much.
I’m thankful I’m so good at looking for books to read.
I’m thankful for Isaac Asimov, whose anthology “Before the Golden Age” inspired me to become a writer.
I’m thankful that -- most of the time -- when I type “Cook Kid,” my editor or proof-readers catch it.
I’m thankful for lives lived lively, my own included.
I’m thankful you read to the end. Turkeys speak gobbledygook.
