Wild turkeys are thriving in our area lately and a family of them (I hate to say "flock" becaause there are only 7 - maybe a "band" or a "gang"?) live near our house so we see them on the way to school and back every day.
Anyway, the kids and I were talking about how for the longest time, these turkeys just scratched and pecked at the roadside, without ever actually being on the road. However, the last few days they've taken up scurrying to the other side the second we're passing them. And hubby said he'd had one of them stand right in the road and look at his truck the day before.
So 'Fuscius Junior says...
...wait for it...
"It was playing chicken."
