Never before in my life have I needed to leave Provo so badly. I think if Sav and I stay in this town for a day longer, people across the world will watch the news tonight and see that there was a mass killing in Provo. This isn’t because we’re disposed to kill people. Actually, we’re quite pleasant.
The fact is that we are human and it’s been a stressful week. And I know people can’t read our minds and know that we’re stressed, but sometimes those people get on our nerves. And believe me, they would be the first to go when we snap. (Maybe I should stress that Sav and I aren’t going to kill anyone. It’s a figure of speak and a joke.) But the stress is real. The short fuses are real. And the people who are getting on our nerves are real. And because they won’t go away, it’s time to get out of town. Or we will snap in the form of words (a good deal of which might be profane).
So this year, I’m thankful for Thanksgiving. Even if Thanksgiving is with my future in-laws who have the unique ability to stress my fiancée beyond any others. Hopefully things go smoothly and no one gets hurt.
By the way, I love Thanksgiving. Second to Christmas.
