Wednesday

Me and Matty saw this hilarious turkey through the window of a supermarket.
We walk in and jokingly ask the manager where we can get a giant turkey like the one hanging from the ceiling. He looks at us and says, " You want this turkey? "
Next thing you know, the guy is grabbing a ladder and taking it off the ceiling for us! He said it was a display item for Thanksgiving and they didn't need it anymore so he just let us take it.

I was laughing so hard holding the turkey that I could barely breathe,
so Matty carried home the prize turkey.
It's so big that it doesn't even fit through our doorway.
I'm now convinced that the space above the refrigerator was made for giant turkeys like this.

That's lovely, and you are so lucky. I don't have many chances to bring home gigant plastic turkeys very often! But now I'm sure It looks adorable in a kitchen :)
