    Once upon a time there was a turkey.  The turkey was walking past a farm yard.  He heard the farmer’s wife yell, “Make sure you get a turkey!”  Then the turkey got scared and ran. 
    My turkey dressed up as a peacock.  He went to the dollar store and picked up some feathers.  Then he went home.  He looked like a peacock with bright feathers. 
    It did not work because he did not cover up his feathers and when he ran the farmer saw him.  Then that night the farmer went hunting and got him.  Then the farmer’s wife asked him if he got a turkey.  But the farmer could not hear her until she came out.  Then the farmer showed her the turkey.
