turkey trot

last night i reminded h that today is the school's annual "turkey trot." it's a race for all the students, and you win a turkey if you're the fastest in your age bracket.

"turkey trot is the worst!" he whined. "you have to run, like, 12 miles, and all you get is a dead turkey."

better motivation needed?

Thanks for the laugh! Who would want to race for a dead animal?

Very funny!! I'd much rather drive down to the store to get my turkey :)

12 miles and a dead turkey! LOL. I love how kids really can hit the nail on the head sometimes.
