gobble, I need help over here! It’s Thanksgiving! Humans, eating, turkey,
dinner! Do you know what that means? I am in great danger! How did I end up on
this dusty counter top in this strange place? Well, it is a long story but come
inside this time machine with me and I will show you how I got here. Don’t
worry. When the humans realize I’m gone I will just come back as quickly as
possible. We are going to enter the time machine now, so buckle up. “Broom cling
ding bang boom zing!”
here! It was a sunny day and I was playing kickball with my turkey friends over
there in a muddy field. One of my turkey friends kicked the ball so far that it
landed by a medium sized tree and I had to get it. At first, I did not realize
that there was a human behind the medium size tree, so I got closer and closer
to the ball until I could touch it with my pointer finger for only a second.
One of my friends said, “Come on and get the ball!” I turned around and the
human snatched me from the ball. I looked at the human and was surprised
because she looked too old to snatch a turkey! The grumpy human put me inside
her ugly truck and drove me away from my friends. I started to

just get another turkey?” asked one of the
“Well it is
because the other turkeys were too skinny, too small, or too big. This is the
only turkey!” the human said.

and buckle up! “Broom cling ding bang boom zing!”
back to the rusty counter top and came just in time. I smelled the delicious
food on the table and all that was left to be cooked was me! Just then, a huge
surprise came to me.
“Boom!” went the human’s leading door. My dad kicked it and knocked it
down! Then came in my mom, my older sister, and my older brother! There was one
more turkey that came to save me. Their tiny shadow was walking very, very, very
slowly to the door behind everyone else. It was my grandmother! She came

Everyone else had a proud face, but my grandmother was too old to make a face
and she couldn’t even come fast enough to save me!
“You can’t get the
turkey!” the human said.

with an attitude. The humans got closer to my

cook your yummy son!” the human said.
“Well I’m about to
cook you and your family!” my mother said.
Did you know
what my mother did? She threw mashed potatoes on the human’s face! The human’s

dinner we just ate the food left over on their
experience made me realize how much I love Thanksgiving! I am thankful to have
my family! If I didn’t have them, I would have been eaten by now. And I really
enjoyed eating the salad from my mom’s face. Maybe next year we can have another
