Happy Thanksgiving, nerds!
400 years ago, the Pilgrims landed on our shores and proceeded to find opportunity and success.
Just kidding, they found an absolute sh*tshow. Famine. Disease. A native population that vacillated between wanting to kill them and wanting to help them. A little bit more precarious than the times we find ourselves in now.
Wherever you are today, I hope it is with people you love. And if you aren’t with the people you love, I am sure they are out there wishing they could be with you today. Give them a call, shoot them a text, or set up a Zoom.
Bright side? Drinking, football, and naps. You don’t need to go anywhere to enjoy those!
And if you don’t feel like those things?
The ultimate rendition of the Thanksgiving story is the Saints & Strangers miniseries. If you haven’t watched it, I am ashamed of you. Do so now.
In book form, read Mayflower by Nathaniel Philbrick.
Stay safe, nerds.
