Happy Monkey Day!

Izmir and I are going to a Thanksgiving party tonight. You know; turkey, football, and a few people you don’t really like. Plus a lot of people you do like. That is what Thanksgiving is for me, anyway. Izmir doesn’t like anyone, so in that sense Thanksgiving is no different from any other day for him. He does enjoy carving the turkey, though. Where Izmir comes from, people eat monkeys. Whenever a large dead animal is present he gets kind of smug, because he has managed to avoid that fate. At this point, I don’t think anyone would be interested in eating him, unless they like the taste of old monkey flesh soaked in gin and cheap cigarettes.
A few years ago we were having Thanksgiving at my parent’s house when Izmir got the brilliant idea to hide inside the turkey. He jumped out just as my dad was about to carve it, wearing his fez and smoking a cigarette. Best Thanksgiving ever.
