Ever Notice?

Have you ever noticed that when you arrive at a turkey party, the attendees have a habit of turning their backs on you and showing you their, um...well, their backsides? Hmm? Have you ever had that happen to you?

If you get their attention, they'll turn around and give you the beady eye look. You know the one, don't you? It's the why-are-you-bothering-me? look. You've gotten that look now and again, haven't you?

Then, just when you think you might just make friends at this turkey party, they do what clubby sorts generally do...they leave. You have had that experience once or twice, haven't you? Been flat-out left at a party, with only the leftovers to nibble on and the needle stuck in the groove of the Barry Manilow album so that all you hear, over and over again, is At the Copa, Copacabana...At the Copa, Copacabana...At the Co--
Huh? Oh, right, you get the picture.
So...been to any turkey parties lately? Hmm?

That's akin to when people cujole you into going to a party when you really didn't want to and then the leave you flat. So yes, I know the feeling.

Have a great Saturday!
