Gramps: If I'd known you were here today you could have gone down to Vernon with me Jack.
Jack: What's Vernon?
Gramps: That's where Mr. Bud and I hunt. I saw lots of turkey struts today.
Jack: Turkey struts?
Gramps: Yep, you know this time of year turkeys start strutting. They fluff up and drag their wings on the ground.
Jack: They do?
Gramps: Yep, they fluff up and drag their wings for the lady turkeys.
I was holding my breath, knowing where this was probably going to lead. Animal husbandry 101. Silence. Jack said nothing.
Then I remembered Jack was just 8 in December. I figure we have another year before the conversation progresses to the mating habits of animals.
I let my breath out slowly. Safe. For now.
