The Turkey Wreath

This week in my exercise class, Shelly, our instructor, talked about ideas for using left-over turkey; an ideal topic with Thanksgiving only a few days away. She said she had recently tried something new that was wildly successful – a turkey wreath.

When I heard this I couldn’t imagine how a turkey wreath would be made or why anyone would want to do something so stupid. Deep in thought, I missed dance steps and tripped over my own feet.

  • Would the entire wreath be made of turkey or would it be tied onto a green wreath?
  • What parts would you use? Would they be whole, sliced or chopped?
  • How would you secure the turkey?
  • How would you keep it fresh?
  • Would you garnish it with potatoes and cranberries to give it some color?
  • Where would you hang it?
  • How could anything so bizarre be a success?

As I left my thoughts and returned to class, Shelly said the turkey wreath not only looked good but was delicious, too. That’s when I realized she created a food dish rather than a household decoration. Whew – disaster diverted.

I’m going to hang my holiday wreath in a few days but there won’t be any turkey on it.

May the farce be with you!

Giving Thanks

One of my friends asked me on Facebook to participate in a Gratitude Challenge. For five days you were to list three things you were grateful for. I normally don’t engage in these activities, but this time I decided to play. When you see my list, you’ll understand why.

Day 1

I’m grateful that:

  1. My Facebook friends have a sense of humor
  2. I can change the rules – I’ve decided to list 5 things for 3 days instead of 3 things for 5 days
  3. I haven’t been abducted by aliens in a while (that I know of)
  4. My alien implant appears to be inactive (may be related to #3)
  5. My house hasn’t been destroyed by an asteroid

Day 2

I’m grateful that:

  1. I haven’t been in a sharknado…yet
  2. There’s no such thing as a catnado…yet
  3. My car hasn’t disappeared into a sinkhole…yet
  4. I haven’t had to use my Zombie Survival Guide…yet
  5. The earth hasn’t been destroyed by a giant spider apocalypse…yet

Day 3

I’m grateful that:

  1. I haven’t been bitten by a vampire
  2. Time travel hasn’t made me cynical
  3. I haven’t woken up covered in slugs
  4. The voices in my head only scare me a little
  5. This may be The Matrix and none of it is real

I’m also grateful that you took the time to read my blog.

Happy Thanksgiving!

May the farce be with you!

Your IFF,
