You know when you have the kind of day where, say, you spill a full mug of hot coffee all over yourself and your couch and computer, and your car is being a jerk, and your computer decides it didn’t like the coffee bath and stops working, and you get a call from the school district office that several schools are on lockdown because of some armed assholes who robbed a store and escaped on foot?

Well, a sweet Thanksgiving tree from your son won’t fix any of those problems, but at least it offers you a little perspective and a smile.
