"As god is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly."
I used to drive my daughter to school along a road infested with wild turkeys. We would stop and let them meander their way all over the road, sometimes making us quite late for school or gymnastics. I told my daughter that when she became a teenager it was her job to jump on the back of the largest bird she could and ride it home to be our Thanksgiving dinner. She has never done this. I am disappointed.
