So I saw this headline:

Turkey Leaks Secret Locations of U.S.
Troops in Syria

and I thought — “What a strange business. Turkeys don’t usually have media ties.”

It took me a few minutes to remember that Turkey is a nation and not necessarily a gobbling bird trying to avoid Thanksgiving. This probably speaks to my overall loss of sanity regarding the world in which I live. I’m pretty sure that in earlier days, I’d have instantly recognized Turkey as the nation and not the bird.

Sanity is gone. What is left is a sense of being desperately short of sleep, broke … and holding a list of things I need to fix that exceeds any rational likelihood of doing them. Ever.

What to do next?

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’ve had more reality than I can handle. I’m going to read a book. Take me away, magic words.

  1. I had that same problem when I heard “Turkey Leaks Secrets”. What kinds of secrets does a turkey have? And speaking of escaping reality with a book, I’m reading a time travel book right now. A man and his son travel back in time to 1900. Not great literature but it was free through Amazon so I figured why not?

      1. It’s an ok story. But everything seems to go by too easily and quickly. Trying to convince someone that he’s from the future is done within a page and they become totally onboard with the idea that time travel is real.


  2. When I first saw that headline I thought — and this is the truth, I swear — that the leaker was Donald Trump or possibly Trump, Jr. or maybe even Jared. As far as I’m concerned, they’re all turkeys. Sad!

    1. Believe me, you aren’t alone.. Relieved I didn’t have to be first to confess. Thrilled there are others who share the same thought process.

  3. Turkey is too near to us to get them confused with a bird. We also have many Turkish immigrants. The biggest problem with Turkey is their president who likes to keep his people under control by putting them in prison if they don’t act as he wants them to. I think it is called being a dictator


  4. I should have known better but I had the same reaction. I think it is because so many headlines you read on the internet now are weird like that. Or perhaps I was just hoping for a funny story.


          1. Not heard of the book or the author before, or Sandman Slim but the premise interests me. I did like “Michael’ with John Travolta as an Angel ‘with issues’ πŸ˜‰



              1. I’m sure you have a long list of books to read in future, but i wonder, considering your love of history and sci-fi if you had read any of Julian May’s Saga Of The Exiles? A series about travelling back into earth’s past when a race of alien exiles held battles between two opposing sides and 22nd century human misfits were transported back into the middle of it all.
