SPOKANE, Wash. — Finally, the best month of the entire year has rolled around. November has supremacy over the rest of the eleven months for one reason and one reason only: food. There is no denying that food is at the top of my list of importance.
Last year after a volleyball tournament my team went out to dinner. While we waited about 15 minutes for our food to come out my coach was a little surprised by my actions. Astounded, he admitted he’d never even seen me this excited on the court. With the anticipation of food I can’t help but do a little squirming dance in my seat and survey the room like a hawk searching for a mouse.
I love food.
That’s why when November rolls around I couldn’t be happier. There are mashed potatoes, green beans, pumpkin pie, Starbucks seasonal drinks, rolls, turkey and did I say pumpkin pie?
I am thankful for food, no doubt, but I will admit there is more to life than food. Catching up with Gonzaga students I’ve asked them what it is they’re thankful for this holiday season.
