The first thing we were going to do had maybe a zillion-to-one chance against it. But we were going to do it. As of late Wednesday night, we were going to do the first thing, and I think we were excited about it.
The first thing got cancelled Thursday morning. I was very disappointed.
The second thing we were going to do had perhaps a million-to-one chance against it. But we were all set. It was going to happen. After the first thing, we were going do the second thing.
The second thing never happened, either. I was disappointed.
The third thing, well the odds against the third thing were incalculable. It, of course, didn't happen except in my head.
The fourth thing, we got to do. It was nice. So it ended up being a good Thanksgiving.
