I love November

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today's contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha, Frank, Billy and Scott.

Subject: Welcome to November

“I think I'm on a sugar high.”

“Aww. Sugar highs rock. Its a Halloween tradition!”

'They do at that. However, now that it's November, you know what I'm going to ask.”

“Yeah yeah. You and your 'what do you like about this month' blog entries.”

“Oh come on, they're not that bad are they?”

“As long as I don't have to write them, I guess I'm okay with it. Could be worse.”

“I'll even start!”

“Family. By the end of November it's the holiday season and I love seeing my family, particularly my cousins, and hanging out and eating and drinking.”

“You and your non-dysfunctional family. I always look forward to November, and the release of Jones Soda's Holiday pack. Turkey and Gravy Soda!”

“Ugh! That stuff is so disgusting. What was it, brussel sprouts soda last year? I want to throw up just thinking about it.

I like Daylight Savings time, we push the clocks back Sunday morning. It never quite feels like winter and the holidays without it getting nice and dark early.

“It’s rather depressing when it’s already pitch-black when you leave work though. Makes me feel like I missed out on the day.”

Yet another drawback to those conventional 9-5 jobs.

“I have a weakness for leftover Halloween candy. And it all goes on sale in early November too. Leaves me with plenty of sugar right up until chocolate turkeys.”

“Hmm. What do I like about November? Certainly not midterms.. I guess I enjoy the cooking. There are all sorts of fun things to bake in November, Turkeys, Mince Meat Tarts, All sorts of pies…”

Billy, who had been gnawing on a leftover chicken leg, perks up at the mention of pie. “Who’s baking a pie?”

No one. Tabitha was just saying that baking is what she enjoys about November. So what do you like about November Billy? Do we even need to ask?

“Thanksgiving! It’s the Mecca of eating.”

“Billy, that makes no sense. Mecca’s a place, Thanksgiving is a day.”

“Fine. It’s like the First Class of eating.”

Your analogies need some work. If Thanksgiving is First Class, whats coach?

“I dunno, Flag day?”

“Oh of course. We should’ve known.”
