Thanksgiving was coming up. I went to the grocery store and ordered a turkey. The next day the door bell rang and there was a turkey standing at my door.

The turkey said, “You’re Brooks?”

I said, “I am. Who are you?”

The turkey said, “You ordered me at the Jewel. I’m your turkey dinner.”

I said, “I didn’t realize I ordered a living turkey. I can’t see me killing you. I’m okay if you go free. There’s a forest about two miles north of here.”

The turkey said, “Thanks. But I’ve never lived outside. I’ve always been in captivity. Can I stay with you? I can help around the house.”

I said, “Okay.”

I’ve never had someone help me with keeping my home in order.
