Is this a Minnesota thing? I wish I had a nickel for every time each week that somebody asks me that question -- "Any big plans for the weekend?"
.. And how do you answer?
What is "big", anyway?
.. And if you answer "No", do they feel sorry for you, that you have such a pathetic small life? Or should we relish those weekends when there are no big plans -- when the weekend is a clean slate and anything is possible -- maybe even just a nap?
Or are people just that desperate for a topic of conversation?
The three-day weekend begins now. Labor Day is Monday. I hope you have some big plans or at least that you had a good answer when asked.
