Thanksgiving at the PHC
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Thanksgiving, Tim thought to himself. What am I going to write about Thanksgiving?
 
2     Tim sat at a desk in the large observation room of the Permanent Human Colony -- PHC for short. His dad was the director of this facility, and it was a one-of-a-kind underwater research community. Tim, along with several other families, lived, worked, and went to school here every day as they made their home on the ocean floor.
 
3     Tim had the rest of the week off from school, but for a homework assignment, he was required to write a report on what Thanksgiving meant to him.
 
4     "I thought I'd find you here," said Lori as she walked into the observation room. "So have you started your report yet?"
 
5     Lori was in the same class as Tim, and she and her family had lived on the PHC almost as long as Tim had.
 
6     "No, I was trying to think about that now. I wanted to try to get it out of the way before all of the activities for the holiday get underway," said Tim.
 
7     "Activities? What activities?" asked Lori.
 
8     "Well, I just mean tomorrow when we meet up with our families for the Thanksgiving dinner," said Tim. "Oops, it looks like you didn't hear about that yet."
