The Day before Thanksgiving

As of today, half of my *total* posts will be from NaBloPoMo.

I had this teacher in high school-Mr. Romer. Every year, on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving break, he would bring in a turkey. A live turkey. The turkey was kept in the back of the classroom. Mr. Romer spent the entire class period encouraging us to feed the turkey, in order to fatten it for the next day's feast. It never occurred to me at the time, but I later figured out, Mr. Romer was a vegetarian. His little show was intended to make us think about where our food came from. I wonder how many kids refused to eat turkey the next day because of Mr. Romer.
