The other day, Son #1 and I were working on a project for his kindergarten class. Each child was sent home with a paper turkey and instructions to disguise the turkey so it would not be eaten. Before starting our project, I turned to Son #1 and asked. "How should we hide the turkey? What should we make him be?"
My son pondered the question for a moment and then replied. "A banana!"
I drew a banana costume for our turkey friend, cut it out, and then glued it on. Son #1 ran to his room to retrieve his markers. When he returned to the kitchen, we began to color the banana yellow. Midway through the project, I commented. "This is a pretty good costume. Now the turkey won't get eaten."
Son #1 agreed but then his head popped up. "Wait a second! A banana is a fruit! Our turkey IS going to get eaten!"
I almost busted a gut laughing. Then I suggested. "We need a sign."
Our sign fixed the situation perfectly.
