Ouch, how many people have already asked you that question this week? (And how many of those acquaintances really care?) They probably just want to tell you about what THEY are doing anyway.
So, if you’re tired of talking turkey, simply smile and answer, “Going crazy!” If you want to extend the conversation, add, “How about you?”
A nice question to ask real friends is, “So tell me some of the things you’re thankful for this Thanksgiving.” (Remember, when people talk about happy things, they subliminally “connect” those good feelings with you.) When they then reciprocate, be sure to include, “I’m thankful I have a friend like you.”
