Why Did the Turkeys Cross the Road?

I have absolutely no idea.

But I do know they weren't going to:

Weight Watchers
The grocery store
The dry cleaners
The post office
A committee meeting
The dentist
Get highlights
Have the oil changed
The pediatrician
The gym
Have a wax
The gynecologist

I never thought about it until I looked at this, but I kinda wish I were a turkey.

To Turkey.

I am tired just reading your list of things that turkeys don't do but that one Mental P Mama might do. Girl, you get an "A" in Overscheduling 101 :)! As for wanting to join those turkeys, ya gotta look at it this way...if you were a turkey, you wouldn't have much to look forward to at Thanksgiving. When you think about it like that, the wax and gyno don't seem so bad now, do they? BWAHAHAHA!

The turkeys crossed the road to get out of your way. One of them mentioned you might want to consider a vacation; you seemed awfully stressed as you drove by.

They are practicing for the Turkey Marathon held this year on November 27th...Teehee.

Sandi McBride said...

We have wild turkeys everywhere you look, even landing in the back yard amidst the herd of cats...Mac allows as how he had shot two of them before he realized he didn't have his gun! Not that he'd actually shoot one...I'd kill him! Congrats on POTD comment from David!

They do look lost. Maybe help them out with a turkey GPS. Help them find my dining room table?

TSannie said...

Any life that doesn't involve Weight Watchers is a good life. Turkeyness...hmmmm.

asthmagirl said...

I agree with Annie... no weight watchers.

Those turkeys would drive the brute squad nuts!

WORKING MOM said...

HaHa, yeah I think that I'd like to be a turkey too. You made some excellent points.

Trisha said...

Yes, turkeys don't ahve all of that stuff to do but . . . you don't have the chance of being some one's dinner! Hmmmm - which is better now?

Caution Flag said...

And here I was envying the dog...

Keetha said...

Ha ha ha! Good point. Would that we could all be turkeys.

Bear Naked said...

I think they are headed to Canada for October 13th.
Poor misguided birds.

Bear((( )))

Ellen said...

They should be going to WW it's to avoid getting the axe (literally) for the holidays!

What I want to know is why wild turkeys and turkey vultures look so much alike - and both are pretty ugly.

Starwoodgal said...

Bwahahaha! That's funny!

Those are really skinny turkeys. No wonder they didn't need to go to weight watchers. :)

Lisa J said...

Man, you put a whole new light on the turkey life....Till November comes. You better get off the computer and get busy woman, I don't know how you get it all done!

MsMVNJ said...

Looks like my to do list....

I'm new to your blog - it's great! I'll be a regular visitor!

Employee No. 3699 said...

You are the queen of multi-tasking if all those things are on your list.

Adventure girl wanna be said...

You motivated me to get my a*s busy;)

kellypea said...

I'll take turkeys over seagulls any day. As far as your list goes? Uh, I'll pass. Sounds worse than having a job.

Sandie said...

If those turkeys hadn't preoccupied my thoughts with visions of Thanksgiving dinner, I would have focused a little more on that lovely stone wall behind them. That's what I REALLY want on my property!

Flash Stitcher said...

Once again, MPM you have made my day!!!

Actually, those are my relatives and they were running from me. They figure that you had too much scheduled, so they were safe!

noble pig said...

We have a huge turkey problem in my town. They have taken over the cemetary and people are fallen over headstones as they run from the agressive Tom's. Then the turkey's leave the cemetary for their daily food hunt and end up on the Kindergarten playground at my kid's school. They have to chase them away with large pieces of plywood. A Tom even attacked a mailman, jumping on his back. So uh, be careful K?

Big Hair Envy said...

We have turkeys wandering around all over the place at home! They are the silliest looking birds...no wonder we eat them!! hahaha! They drive my dog CRAZY.

Sassy said...

maybe they are getting a headstart before everybody comes looking for turkey's for Thanksgiving...

there aren't too many points in turkey mama

imbeingheldhostage said...

The grass is always greener... I bet in November they'll be wishing they were a Mental P

Daryl said...

They are such Shmoos ... do you recall Al Capp's Shmoos?

Wild turkeys are very funny looking ...

Maybe they were on their way to the White House to visit some of their friends?

:-Daryl

Krysta said...

i hope you are not doing that all today!and the turkeys are headed to the butcher!

Hilary said...

I think they were on their way to Weight Watchers. They'd indulged in too many frozen treats and now they have to quit.. cold turkey. ;)

Magpie said...

I saw nine wild turkeys on the side of the Saw Mill a couple of weeks ago. Nine!

MamaGeek @ Works For Us said...

Okay, so I saw David's comment and I'm still snickering.

AND I ALSO BET they weren't going to Wall Street.

Just sayin'. :)

Tonjia said...

they are probably going to a neighborhood watch meeting.... ;-)

CrazyCath said...

Except when it is near Christmas, I wish I were a Turkey too. ;0)

Flea said...

Hey turkey. So you definitely want a Pay it Forward prize?

Deb said...

Those wild turkeys can be mean and very loud. Trust me, they have been close to the house and believe me, when they wake you up the only thing that comes to mind is Thanksgiving dinner!

Egghead said...

Yes but I do know where they were going. They would love to take a swim in that nice clean pool of yours. Oh turkeys don't swim....um once the turkeys at our place left me a nice gift on our diving board. The turds, literally.

dlyn said...

You might not wish you were a turkey if you lived around here - in a few weeks people will be shooting at them!

Country Girl said...

There's no chardonnay in turkeytown.

Country Girl said...

And how the hell does David know where they're going??

holly said...

wait - i thought those were the places the turkeys DID go!!!

i'm a card-taker at my meeting now. you should totally come to my meeting. it would *so* be worth the commute...

Snooty Primadona said...

OMG, this made me laugh so hard! Yes, there were a few snorts involved, lol.

Thanks, but I'll pass on being a turkey. Or a sheep or a cow or any other edible animal. I prefer being at the top of the food chain, lol.

Alias Liz Jones said...

I am tired Mental P Mama. Whew. I have to rest now. I may cook a turkey because they need to be taught a lesson.
