Gobble, Gobble

Today was an early release day and, as expected, the kids were nuts.

Near the end of the day, while we were in the hall, a grade level coworker told her students to “Be quiet. Act like turkeys.”

I smiled. And waited.

Sure enough, her kids started to gobble.

“I said be quiet.”

One student rightly (and very confusedly) said, “But you said to act like a turkey. Turkeys aren’t quiet.”

I had been stifling my giggles, but I couldn’t hold them back any longer. I laughed and nodded.

Teacher said, “I know, that didn’t come out right,” and started laughing, too.

I apologized to her later, for making her lose face in front of her students and she said, “Oh hell, I was being a turkey!”
