    Imagine you’re a turkey, hoping to escape the fate of barnyard fowl, Thanksgiving or otherwise. You see a giant cornucopia, overflowing with the harvest.

    Because you are a smart bird, you first try to bribe the innocent children: grab an ear of maize, tell the kids to pretend that they are deciduous teeth and get them to put the kernels under their pillows. Hopefully, they will be grateful when the tooth fairy leaves a large sum of money. This will cause them to set you free.

    Unfortunately, the farmer detects the trickery and gives each child a sound licking. This doesn’t squash your hopes. Instead, you steal all of the chestnuts and acorns from the horn and trade with the squirrels for a shiny red raincoat.

    Donning your disguise, you skip down the lane, telling everyone along the way that you are off to see grandma. Halfway there, Charlotte spins a cautionary message on her web:

    Eat Wilbur.

    “You turkey!” she said with a chuckle as she playfully slapped the air.

    “What? What, you don’t think it will be a good idea for me to bet dressed in a raincoat?” Sally asked.

    “It’s acorn-y attempt at old time seduction,” Lucy said.

    “Well, I can’t go wrap myself in seaweed. It’s not deciduous to the mountains, yah know!” Sally said.

    “I hate to squash your ideas.”

    Sally lifted her glass to her lips, taking a deep draw of her peach margarita into her mouth.

    “I am not good at setting up a web to catch me a man. Although there is a cornucopia of choices that come through this place,” Sally said after swallowing.

    “You could stand at the door with a basket of maize and chestnuts. See who is hungry? That might help you with your harvest,” Lucy offered up with a smirk.
