What’s the best Thanksgiving food? I’m not sure my favorite holiday. Used to be Halloween. Probably still is. I like cesar chavez day. March 31st. Good time of year. I always debate to take it off or not. He was such a hard worker, he’d probably want me to work. I like Thanksgiving because I like most of my family and don’t hate anyone in it. Very lucky. Kind of a lot of food.
I remember a Thanksgiving week 18 years ago. I ate so much at 2 pm I didn’t eat the rest of the day. I was supposed to work the next day but never set my alarm. I woke up at 730 for a 7 am shift. So i was 90 minutes late for work. I ended up taking a break at 10 am because it was slow and I hadn’t eaten for 20 hours. Anyways. I was making tea and ended up spilling boiling water on my thigh. I was only wearing scrubs in the hospital cafeteria. So I couldn’t really take them off. I was walked down to the er and eventually got my scrubs off and my left leg was twice the size of my right. They sent me to plastic surgery because the doctor that saw me was the same age and either didn’t know what to do or didn’t think it was an emergency. Dermatology was in another building so for some reason I thought I was going to have a plastic leg covering my leg. Anyways, they bandaged me. At this point it is 2 pm and I had a friend come to see me but I still drove my car home. I think the weirdest part was I was so hungry for not eating for 24 hours I ate my sweet potatoes that were leftover so I had some sugar for the drive. I can’t believe you are still reading this. I went back to work on cyber monday and was white as a ghost. Employee health sent me home saying I had an open wound on my thigh and could not work with blood. They kept me home on workman comp for 4 weeks. It ended up being staph aureus. Don’t really have any scars anymore. Probably lucky I was 23.
