I know what you’re doing. You’re sitting in your cube as the day ticks by, surfing the Internet, waiting until you can finally leave to get on with your holiday plans. It’s okay, I won’t tell your boss.
So, what are your plans, anyway? Are you jumping into a car to drive home, knowing that the drive will take twice as long because that’s what EVERYONE is doing? Are you spending Thanksgiving here in the area? Are you one of the crazy ones actually hosting dinner? (And if so, your turkey should be in the brine NOW!)
I’m one of the crazy ones- I’ll be spending the afternoon getting last-minute supplies and cleaning my house in preparation to spend all of tomorrow cooking. Fortunately, we throw dinner parties all the time, so we’re more excited than stressed, but not everyone hosting their first Thanksgiving feels as prepared as we do.
