Don't Eat the Turkey

A persuasive paragraph that Michal wrote at school.  I think it's hilarious.

Don't Eat the Turkey

There are six reasons why you shouldn't eat me.

I am a mother and I have children so please don't eat me.  Who is going to watch my children, especially the youngest?  I am also one of God's creatures so you shouldn't eat me.  A skunk also sprayed me last night.  I also didn't eat in the last two weeks so I am too thin, so why don't you eat a different turkey?

I am too fast for you.  You wouldn't be able to catch me for a long time.  I won't taste good because I eat rotten vegetables.

On Thanksgiving, why don't you eat a chicken?


  1. Cracks me up! Smart girl :) just curious, did she eat turkey on Thanksgiving?

    1. Nope. Neither she nor Kenna would touch it with a ten-foot pole! But they both avoid meat like the plague.

  2. She's definitely got a great sense of humor!

  3. Great writing!!

  4. She sure convinced me - no turkey! Great creativity, love the humor. Smart girl! :)

    Hi, not to bother you, but curious if you have a SIL named Linda. If so, we went to h.s. together. I hope all is well with her.
