What are you doing for Thanksgiving?

In my line of work I get asked the same questions a lot. The one most recently is: What are you doing for Thanksgiving?

I like to say something noble like "talk to my family for hours ... maybe get a videophone going", but I really just want to get this word count under control. I've got 4 days almost consecutively off, and I think I can pull this off. (but try explaining that to a stranger.)

Maybe I'll cook some Indian food in addition to whatever the Pilgrims would have eaten (twice-baked potatoes, right?).


  1. I don't think it would be odd or rude to simply explain that you're also a writer and that you'll write over the break. Hopefully I'll get some done too.

  2. At my house, it will be coconut shrimp and a movie marathon. Just like the Pilgrims, if the Pilgrims were deep sea fishermen in the Bahamas with a Netflix subscription.
