I've been called Despondent* before... But true despondency has hit today. Actually, it hit two days ago.
Need the story? Okay. Spouse, Yahoos and myself have a tradition called the TURKEY DAY BOYCOTT. I knew you'd want the recipe, so here it is:
1 Thanksgiving Day
4 sets of ski gear
1 Park City Mountain Resort
1 Hotel room in Park City, complete with restaurant and indoor pool
On Thanksgiving Day, load the gear into the car and drive to Park City. Dress yourself in gear and ski until Yahoos have had enough. Load yourselves back in the car, drive to the hotel, walk into the restaurant, eat prepared (emphasis on prepared) Turkey dinner. Check into room. Put on the swimsuits. Swim until very tired. Go to hotel room and pass out.
It's a delightful tradition. But this year IT'S NOT HAPPENING!!!! Why? The most crucial of ingredients - Park City Mountain Resort - is not open! What are we gonna do now?
Think snow people. It's very necessary and will cure the despondency.
* Need another word(s) for despondent? Try all torn up, blue, bummed-out, cast-down, despairing, disconsolate, doleful, forlorn, glum, in a blue funk, griefstricken, morose, woebegone, wretched.
