I'm dedicating this post to T. He is, and as an extension I suppose I am, thankful for Bigfoot.
Let me explain, T's favorite show on television right now is Finding Bigfoot on Animal Planet. And they had a marathon on Sunday and season premiere Sunday night. All weekend, T asked "guess what's on Sunday?" "guess what's on tomorrow?" It was like Christmas morning for him. I haven't seen him this gleeful since Beavis and Butthead came back on briefly on MTV.
So we watched Bigfoot...but fell asleep so we watched it again Tuesday night. For those of you who have not seen the show...seriously, you're missing out. Four grown adults going out into the woods "squatchin' which means they are looking for Bigfoot. They dedicate their life to this. I'm not kidding. One of them? Is an attorney. He passed the freaking bar in California, which is impossible, and he gave it all up to live in his car and hunt Sasquatches.
The thing is that man probably makes like triple what I make. I always joke that I'm going to quit my job to move to Oregon and hunt squatches. (Can I crash at your house, Sarah?)
One of them is named Bobo, and the dude is something out of a Cheech and Chong movie. "Duuude I just heard a squatch..." I mean the guy was a roadie with Phish if that tells you anything. The whole thing cracks me up but T loves it.
Something to think about - is it any coincidence that a lot of the states (Washington, Colorado...) where they do their hunts have recently legalized marijuana? I'm just saying....
They go do "town hall" meetings where the local yokels come to tell their story. They ask people to raise their hand if you've seen Bigfoot, and they all raise their hand. I mean it's hilarious.
So if they are hunting more than one - is the plural Bigfeet?
Can you imagine that there are so many questions and things you can think about over Bigfoot? And the show is called "Finding Bigfoot." It's been on for like 3 seasons and they still haven't found him. What happens if they do? Will they just stop and be all like "peace, we're done?"
I don't know...you mention Sasquatch and this immediately comes to mind:
But it makes T happy like a little child, and for that....I am thankful.
