What Was I Thinking?

I'm home, sitting at my work/play table creating, minding my own business when Raquel calls:


Raquel....Hi Mom, wanna buy a turkey?

Me..........Umm, I need details Raquel!

Raquel...Well, Some Turkeys didn't make the weight rules and so, we have Turkeys we need to
get rid of...... I mean sell.

Me.........Are they freak Turkeys or

Raquel....(audible sigh)...No Mom, we just have to sell them or something.

Me.......How much are they?

Raquel....I don't know yet but I'll let you know later when I find out.

She tells me to hold on and then proceeds to yell at someone regarding the price and. I hear people talking back and big crowds of people rumbling and the PA system making announcements....

Raquel....OK, It's $30.00 and the butcher will cut and wrap and deliver.


Raquel....Really? Awesome Mom. Ok, I'll talk to ya later...Love ya!

Me........Ok...Oh Wait! Call Auntie, she might wanna buy one.

Raquel....OH! Great! OK...Good Idea....your so smart....LOL!!

Me.......And don't you forget it...bye!

I didn't ask how big, what breed, age...nothing. I was taken by surprise plus, I had Modge Podge all over my fingers and it was drying. Am I? Am I really smart?


  1. You'd be a flip[in' genius if you could figure out why I can't get the post before this one to "work" for me..*sniff, sniff*
    On the bright side, a $30 turkey is probably a pretty healthy weight, yes?

  2. well, that sounds much more interesting than my usual phone calls!

  3. She could have at least offered to bring the cranberry sauce and stuffing.

  4. you are going to be eating turkey you should google turkey recipes:0)

  5. At least it wasn't a perv calling!!!

  7. Yikes! I thought she was calling to see if you wanted to buy a live turkey. I'll send my kids right over there. Since I am vegetarian now, they miss having turkey for the holidays. :) (Don't worry, I order a baked one for them from the grocery store deli so they can get their fix.) Happy mod podging! Tammy

  8. Bunny visiting here does make me smile :) Well at least that's Thanksgiving (and probably Christmas??) sorted! x

  9. Kids, (I mean mom's) say the darndest things!

    All I can say is, "Way to go, you big turkey". JK! Just couldn't resist. That's what me and two of my sisters use to say to each other alot growing up. I'm sure that it will be delicious. Cute blog. Love your vintage pics! I am now following you.

  10. This reminds me of the pig...never mind, I don't want to talk about it!

  11. For a second there, I thought you were saddling yourself with a "pet" turkey! Glad to be it will be of the eating variety!

  12. big were those turkey's for 30 dollars!!


Go 'head...say it already!
