With Thanksgiving coming for us Canucks, Turkeys are the theme of classrooms far and wide. This is a difficult concept when you are in grade one, as evidenced by the following conversation I had with Rachel:
Rachel: Mommy, look what I made today!
Me: What is it baby girl?
R: It's a... Umm... Pea-hawk.
R: No! I mean a Pang-Win.
R: I forget. I think it's a Rooster.
R: But mommy, it's really a, like a, Oss-Rich.
M: Little Ray?
R: Yes mama?
M: I'm pretty sure it's a Turkey.
R: Ohhhhh. That's what I meant.
For the record, it was a neon-green, orange-striped, pink-polka-dotted turkey with blue toenails and a ripped-off wattle because Rachel said it was "ug-a-ly". His name is Princess Turkeyface.
