Eugism No. 1: Stupid Turkeys

Well, it didn’t take long following my earlier post that a Eugism reared its beautiful head!turkey

Euge was laying in his bed at the hospital surrounded by a few family members. I had just arrived with Holly from his house, where we narrowly missed a group of turkeys crossing the road just outside their driveway.

Of course, I shared the experience with him as soon as I entered the room.

“Damn stupid turkeys,” my grandma immediately quipped.

Well, it wasn’t long after that Grandpa raised up a bit, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, glaring across the bed at his wife.

“Stupid?” he asked. “They walk around and shit in the yard, but THEY don’t step in it, YOU do! Who’s the stupid one now?”

For a moment, at least, everything was back to normal in the world of Euge.
