Throwback Turkey: Dirty Bird
This Thanksgiving program might be the reason I can't eat turkey. Because I WAS a turkey, you see. I straight up method-acted that show. I became one with the turkey. Or maybe it has nothing to do with that and everything to do with the fact that turkey tastes like dirt, in my opinion. (Every year on the blog I try to find an excuse to bash turkey and call it "Dirty Bird." Success!) Anyway, for the last four years in a row, I've gone so far as to adopt a turkey from a place called Farm Sanctuary. Yes, I am one of the California hippies your mother warned you about. This year I sponsored a bird named Martha who is from SoCal and isn't anywhere near as ugly as her turkey pals.
While I won't be eating turkey today, I will be eating everything else I can, because I'm nothing if not traditional, you guys. I hope your day is wonderful and I hope your dirty bird is delicious. This year I'm grateful for so many things (see Tuesday's blog) but I'm also mega-thankful for you.
