    under A you forgot arugula. and under S you forgot SAM SWIG! (just kidding)

    i am thankful for you. and also a lot of the things on your list. happy thanksgiving! (even though the historical detail behind the holiday is erroneous, the spirit of the holiday rings true as it has evolved.)

    Definitely don’t know what some of these things are but Really like the list. Have to bring some show and tell over on my feelings about the holiday.
