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?

  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!

  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.
