It’s right around this time of year that everyone starts asking, “So what are you going to do for Thanksgiving?” I’m baffled by this. Because I’ve honestly NEVER asked anyone this question because I was curious. I’m not. I may ask it after someone asks me, but really – I don’t care. I’m ASSUMING that you’re going to go to a friend’s or relative’s house. And eat, not surprisingly, turkey. Unless this was some sort of weird holiday where people pass the time by doing very dangerous things, like shark hunting or cave diving…then I don’t really care to hear about it.
I know, it makes me horrible. Or insane. Either way, I’m sure you’ll have a swell time, and I WANT you to have a lovely swell time. I really do. I just don’t need to ask you about it. I guess some of you will say that it’s a way for someone to make conversation…I suppose. But how about something better like, “Jen what do you think of (enter topic here)?”
“Jen, what do you think of The Walking Dead?”
I think it’s fucking awesome! Let’s talk about zombies. I like slow zombies instead of fast zombies like in Zombieland. How about you?
An interesting conversation ensues.
“Where are you going for Thanksgiving?” Or “Are you doing something fun for Thanksgiving?” just aren’t interesting conversation topics for me. Mostly because I don’t do anything great. Doesn’t everyone just sit around with their families and eat a lot and watch football? Ok then. So we don’t need to ask one another. Sorry!
I know. I suck. Sorry.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you all get felt up at the airport!
