For some reason, you decided to host Thanksgiving this year, and from the second your aunt came through the door and asked when you’re getting married, you’ve regretted it. But finally, the moment’s come: the last guest is out the door, and you finally have your privacy back…but Thanksgiving isn’t over yet…
The moment you realize everyone is gone and you can finally stop playing host
…And then you realize that your entire home is now a mess and you’re the only one who’s going to clean it up
Then you start finding half-finished soda cans and water bottles all over your house
Your dog starts acting up, and that’s when you realize your nephew telling his mom that he finished his vegetables really means he fed them to the dog
Your next door neighbor is suddenly already putting out Christmas lights
So you remember that there’s only a month left till Christmas, and now you’re motivated to clean up the Thanksgiving stuff even faster
When you start putting away leftovers and you realize someone conveniently forgot to mention that they took the last of the turkey home for themselves
Your phone rings. It’s a text from your aunt, who forgot her scarf (or hat, or coat, or lipstick, it’s always something) and she’s wondering if you could pretty please search the entire house for it?
Then you see the pile of dishes in the sink…and realize you’re the only one who’s going to clean them.
Which seems like the worst part of hosting…until you see the amount of garbage you somehow need to fit in your tiny can
While you didn’t get any leftover turkey, you snagged an entire pie to keep in your fridge
But then you get a nice text from your mom thanking you for being such a great host
So you decide that even though it was crazy, you’re going to host again next year
And next year, you’re making sure no one gets leftover turkey but you
Then you remember you’ve got to head out for Black Friday shopping in a few hours and fight off the crowds for your new flatscreen
And that you don’t have a way to get that flatscreen home…
Need help bringing the Christmas decorations out of storage? Still don’t have a way to get your new flatscreen home after Black Friday? Maybe you ate too many turkeys and need to do a dump run? Let us bring the truck and muscle so you can focus on decompressing and getting ready for the next big holiday.
Happy Thanksgiving from your friends at Dolly!
