Speaking of turkey, Sly & The Family Stone are the epitome of  the phrase “jive turkey”. Is that enough of a correlation for why I thought this Soul Train classic was appropriate for this week’s Turkey edition of Throwback Thursday?

JK, I actually chose this song/video because for me Thanksgiving is really about 2 major things, family and gratitude.  Obviously Thanksgiving  is also about the manic food-binge, but that comes with the enjoyment of being around the people that you enjoy feasting with the most! If you happen to be eating at my mother’s house on Thanksgiving you’ll appreciate the fact that you will not be  judged you based on the amounts of mouthwatering macaroni, scrumptiously seasoned stuffed turkey, delicious quiche, orgasmic pie, and thirst quenching adult-cocktails that you absorb (#FoodPorn).

Anyways, if there’s anybody I need to thank for letting me be myself, it’s my blood family and my Karmaloop family!

Dance to the music
all night long
everyday people
sing their simple song
mama’s so happy
mama starts to cry
papa’s still singing
you can make it if you try
I want to thank you for letting me be myself again

Happy Thanksgiving beautiful ladies!
