Going Cold Turkey

  It’s that time of year again.  The leaves are falling, there’s pumpkin spice everywhere, and Thanksgiving is just around the corner.  For many students, that means a nice, relaxing weekend home is on the horizon.  Others are in for a harder conversation than the one with that creepy uncle you (thankfully) see only once a year.

Our roving reporters hit the sidewalks to see what PC students have to say about the idea of “Splits-giving.”  We spoke with one student, a senior, wise after enduring seven semesters of college, named Joanne.  Here’s what she had to say:  “You know, it seems like more people are staying with their high school significant other.  But then Thanksgiving rolls around and it’s Splits-giving—the breakup that happens after realizing that a high school relationship isn’t going to work anymore.”  

It sounds like some people are going to be diving into that stuffing and pie as a way of filling a void besides their stomachs.  Keep your friends close and your significant others even closer (unless you’re the one doing the damage, then Godspeed).
