And you all thought we died...
In fact, what really happened is at our wonderful feasts of the turkey (because we were not together on Thanksgiving) , at exactly 7 oh 2 p.m., aliens apparated onto our feast tables! Like the hero's we are, we slayed those green beasts- but little did we know that you fall into a deep four day slumber after accomplishing such a feat.
... and that is probably why you thought we died.
p.s. Just kidding, I'm a compulsive liar.
