The Worst Thanksgiving by Hahaha me

Watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is my one of my favorite things about Thanksgiving. So you can imagine how furious I was when I kept on falling asleep in the middle of it. Tissues were piled up next to my spot on the floor, right in front of the TV. You’d think that I would be a bit cheered by the smell of squash and turkey drifting into the living room.

But it was just as much of a challenge to smell anything than it was to stay awake.

I was sick on Thanksgiving! Whenever I had to blow my nose I would wince and mutter. “Why of all the days do I have to be sick on Thanksgiving? Maybe I have mono…”

Fortunately, I didn’t, but when we went up to my grandmother’s house to “celebrate” I was stranded on the couch. Hours later I dizzily stumbled over to the table, and tried to eat what had remained. of the meal. It hurt to open my mouth and swallow. “I can’t even eat!” I complained.

The next day I still couldn’t eat. And still the next! Finally, I recovered. Sadly, the leftovers of the Thanksgiving meal was already devoured by then. I tried not to think of it. But when I had to return to school I wore my favorite jeans and realized I had to wear a belt with it because I had gotten skinny from not eating. “I’m supposed to get fatter Thanksgiving break, not thinner!” I moaned. How had I let the yummy once-a-year feast slip through my hands?
