The Thanksgiving Problem – A Soundtrack.

The other day I was heading to my cousin’s house for dinner with my super cool chicky-babe, K-Dub, when I heard a commercial on the radio. It was for an upcoming sale, and the music was….Christmas songs. Christmas. Christmas? Christmas! Wait, we didn’t even hit Thanksgiving Day yet, and the yule tide tunes were revving …
