After this weekend, I have no doubt that The Husband has assimilated into American culture.
For those of you who don't know, The Husband became a citizen of the USA about a year and a half ago. He says that he became a citizen so he could vote (he was tired of taxation without representation... wasn't there a war about that?!?), so that the entire family had citizenship in the same country, and other equally as noble reasons.
Noble Schmoble. Now I know the truth - he just wanted an excuse to take part in our great Thanksgiving weekend traditions without feeling ashamed. This weekend he:
- Decorated our house with more types of Christmas decorations that I've ever seen ("but I got them on sale after Christmas last year for 75% off" he claims)
- Got up at 4:00am on Friday to hit the early specials, and came home with something we didn't really need (although I do admit that the new vacuum does pick up the dog hair better than old one did, and our kennel club will be thankful to get the old vacuum to use in the club building)
What could be more American at holiday time?
