NaNoWriMo Day 17
In honor of Thanksgiving, which I just *at this very moment* realized was This Week, and the fact that it’s Saturday and I don’t feel like composing an inspiring blog entry (yeah, like I’m really that inspirational), I give you the traditional Thanksgiving feast. Here is an opportunity unlike any other: to see what a real, live writer eats during the holidays (and I say that with all the sarcasm I can possibly muster).
Turkey: Yes (I mean, I can’t forego turkey on Thanksgiving, even if I do prefer honey ham—which I eat by the truckload at Christmas)
Stuffing: depends on how I’m feeling that day; usually that means no
Mom’s sweet potato casserole: Oh, most definitely. It’s what I Live For—what keeps me inspired the rest of the year.
Homemade bread: Yes
Vegetables: But only green beans, lima beans, or corn
Cranberry sauce: Definitely Not
Pumpkin Pie: No
I just realized what a total Thanksgiving Party Pooper I am. Stuffing, Cranberry Sauce, and Pumpkin Pie are like, the staples of Thanksgiving dinner, and I don’t even eat them.
Oh well, I do plan to pretend I’m an adult and contribute to this year’s dinner. I’m making something chocolate.
*And you wonder why you’re not surprised!
