Summit Up 11-24-10: Waitin’ for bird

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that’s sitting here with a little bib tied around our neck, knife in one hand, fork in the other just waiting for someone to come along and serve us a yummy Thanksgiving dinner.(sound of crickets)Hmmm … doesn’t Mommy or Daddy show up at this point with a Rockwellian bird on a plate with those cute li’l paper doily things on the end of each drumstick? We’ll wait a bit more, perhaps.(a siren tears the night in half)Oh well, guess we’ll have to head over to the ol’ Loaf ‘n’ Jug or the Kum & Go or the Pay n’ Take or the Choke ‘n Puke or the Whatever Mart and buy us some kinda microwave burrito, since waiting around for something to happen obviously ain’t working.Hope they have a turkey flavored frozen burrito thingy.***We’re short on room today so we can only say drive safe out there if you’re traveling for Thanksgiving. It’s s’posed to be windy as hell, we hear. If you’re not traveling, bundle up before heading out on the hill and keep an eye out for unstable snow and out-of-control nutbags. We’re not sure which is worse. We out.
