Chinese for Thanksgiving
I know what you are thinking, how traditional right? I agree. For the second year in a row I have spent my Thanksgiving far away from family, far away from home, far away from anything that even resembles a thanksgiving dinner, and this year it was chinese food. Not very good chinese food either.
Last year I went on a tour of random peoples houses and stuffed my self full of turkey dinners. This year I was planning on going around as well but either pure laziness or just lack of interest caused me to make a detour to the only open restaurant for miles and order chicken lo mein, and overcooked egg rolls.
I was not able to go home because once again I am on duty for the holidays. This seems to be a reoccurring theme. Why is every single holiday in this country 6 weeks apart? Due to that slight coincidence I have spent every three day weekend for the last year and a half right here in MD walking around town with a pager.
Now I am here at work at the butt crack of dawn. I volunteered to come in so that at least someone else could have a normal thanksgiving. I am not planning on having any patients at all.. just gonna sit here and study all day.
There’s no place like home for the holidays.
