    I always see shit about people’s families getting trashed on Thanksgiving but I don’t know anyone’s family who actually does that. I’ll take a six pack but I’d prefer to not make an ass out of myslef in front of my grandparents. But regardless the power move lists take me from six to midnight. Keep em coming.

      In my family everyone form the age range of 21-30 gets drunk, everyone 30+ complains how one day we’ll be like them married with kids and can’t get away with doing it anymore, and the underage kids try to convince us to sneak them beers.
