How do you know so much about Thanksgiving?

"My mom organizes the Turkey Trot."

Do you run in it?

"Yes. With the whole family. Last Thanksgiving, our light power went out."

What's the best part of the day?

"My favorite part is the eating. That's what I like."

Who cooks the turkey at your house?

"My mom."

Is it hard to cook a turkey?

"Not really. You kill a turkey. You take off the feathers and you cut off the neck. Then you buy it from the store and put it in the oven. And you bake it, I think, for about an hour."
