What To Pack for Thanksgiving

Dearest Readers,

Don't worry yourselves so about packing for the holidays. This is how we always pack: Calmly imagine a day at home (or wherever you are going) during the holidays. First, you will wake. Will you be naked, wearing a borrowed oversized tee emblazoned with a cute saying with which you cannot sympathize, or in your own cozy pajamas? Then, you will pad to the bathroom. Will you be brushing your teeth with your index finger and some found mouthwash, with a borrowed toothbrush, or with your own oscillating M-78 Oral-B tangerine colored electric toothbrush? Then, you will be trotting down the stairs for breakfast. Will you be dressed in too-tight, out-of-date clothing, a borrowed khaki pantsuit, or comfortable wool slacks topped by soft cotton shirt and navy cashmere sweater? Etcetera, etcetera.

We are going to Ohio with our man. We will probably be dressed all wrong. Some people just don't understand vinyl. More later...


Happy Thanksgiving,
Jeepers

For those upset and curious about above pet-sitting SOS message: The animals, Petunia and Julie, are fine and so is the Great-Grandmother's table and so is dear Eliza. Steve came to the rescue while Jeepers was in Ohio and took over their care. And "Designer Ella" is either being v. funny, or she's just trying to make up for insulting our "These Ten Things," shopping list suggestions. Keep reading, Ella, you might come to agree with Jeeper's fashion pronouncements!

I would definitely be brushing my teeth with an electric toothbrush, if I have an option other than using my fingers and some toothpaste!!
That's an awesome packing list!!
