Me:  Zj, do you know what Thursday is?

ZJ: It's tomorrow. Right?

Me: Well, yes, but do you know what holiday is tomorrow?

ZJ:  It's Turkey Day!

Me: Well, yes, it's Thanksgiving.  Do you know what Thanksgiving is all about?

ZJ: Umm... Turkeys and stuff?

Me: Well, not exactly.  Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate all the things you are thankful for.  (Insert inane chatter about pilgrims here). 

ZJ:  Oh. What's thankful?

Me: It means you are glad to have something in your life.  Like your family.  Most people are very thankful for their family.  Can you think of something you are thankful for?

ZJ: Well, I am thankful for tomatoes.  You know, the  little kind that are round and red but not round like balls.  More like eggs.  You know, the ones that look like little red eggs.  I'm thankful for those.

Me: And you're thankful for your family, too, right?

ZJ: Well, yeah, but mostly I'm thankful for tomatoes.

This post is brought to you by Mama Kat's Writing Workshop and tomatoes.  You know, the little egg-shaped ones.
