Listen To Your Turkey!

Today was "Ride Your Bike to Work Day".

I did not ride my bike to work because I don't have a bike. And let's be honest here. Even if I DID have a bike, I would not have ridden it to work today.

No, I didn't ride my bike. Instead I drove my less than green, gas guzzling, hole in the exhaust, SUV.

As punishment of this clear violation to the earth, Mother Nature and/or Al Gore made a VERY LARGE and VERY SCARY wild turkey run across the street, right. in. front. of. my. car!

This thing was not only insanely ugly, it was very large and very scary. Birds shouldn't be that big and they definitely shouldn't be running out of the woods across a busy street in the middle of a city! I don't think I took a breath for a good 3 minutes.

Thankfully I did not hit this bad Juju that ran in front of my car. If I did I'm sure I would have died from saying the words "OH MY GOD! Ewwww!" too many times in a row. Really. One can die from that. Just look it up!
I know the fact that I didn't hit this large mammal like bird is a sign from Ma Nature and Al. This time was just a warning. In fact I'm pretty sure this Wild Turkey shook it's little claw at me while my loud SUV slammed on the brakes.

So I got the hint. I'm Green. I'm so green that I make Kermit the Frog look pale. I'm not even going to turn the lights on in my office today and you won't catch me printing out any emails. No sir! None.

The Wild Turkey has spoken and I have listened.

Have a green day and don't wear too much hemp. It can be itchy.

Hemp is itchy?
