Is God trying to tell me something?
Is He leaving a mocking message in the comments page of my life?
When I left for work the other day, something was not right. There was some kind of ruckus going on at the neighbors', but I couldn't tell quite what it was at first.
The dogs were barking and there were fluttering sounds from the roof of the neighbors' garage. I looked up and saw this.
There were about 25 wild turkeys on the roof of the garage, where usually there are none. And they seemed to be eyeing me. And some of them were definitely laughing.
That's right, turkeys.
Then, I looked around, and there were more turkeys in the yard.
I was surrounded by turkeys, wherever I looked.
What was the message here?
I was at a complete loss for the correct collective name for a group of turkeys, until I explained to my wife that the birds had been wandering around, unsure where to go, until the barking dogs panicked them and they all moved in a rush to the garage roof, where they were trapped without a plan for escape. She then remembered the word.
A committee of turkeys.
