Spending Thanksgiving at my parents has a ton of upside. First of all, they are much more financially secure than I am. This means I know I am going to get some great meals, it’s not just the quality of their Turkey or the many sides they prepare either. They are also much better cooks than I am! When it comes to cooking, I am a heat and serve kind of guy. I might throw on some seasoning and perhaps some kind of garnishment, but, when my parents cook, they are involved in their cooking. There is one setback to having Thanksgiving at their house, and that is that they actually like to run their A/C to epic proportions. I live in a hotter region of the country, so it usually feels great to have their A/C on full blast. However, after an hour or so, I am cold because their thermostat is set so low. I never say anything, of course, because I am a guest in their house, and I feel like telling them to change their thermostat setting would be wrong. I hope there is some kind of malfunction with their HVAC system when I arrive, although I know that will never be the case. My parents have an HVAC service plan where a professional air conditioning system corporation comes out once a year. I also hope for a cold front as I think that would encourage them to simply open the windows as opposed to running their A/C. I would then be able to wear a jacket when I come over without looking foolish.
