Turkey Time

Word count: 1940

Several relatives got to meet the mac for Thanksgiving. Mandy, 8, was the most impressed; her fingerprints are all over the screen. As I was demonstrating QuickTime, I discovered that none of my cousin’s children had ever seen Star Trek. Considering that I was already addicted to TOS by that age, I was shocked by their abysmal ignorance.

I could tell that most of them were not sci-fi people, but Mandy was fascinated by Khan. She fast-forwarded through everything else, but she wanted to see the sleeping man wake up.

Mandy has definite fandom potential.
