The Turkey Stuffs Himself

November 22, 2017

Twitter used to limit tweets to a maximum of 140 characters. Recently, it doubled that to 280 characters.

You can attach up to 4 images to a tweet. Images don’t add anything to the character count.

I thought it might be fun to try telling a story in 280 characters. A Thanksgiving story seemed appropriate. Here’s the tweet:

The Turkey walked into a restaurant.

He ordered a pound of butter; an onion, 5 stalks of celery, and 2 apples (chopped);
a bowl of chicken broth; and 3 pounds of toasted bread crumbs.

He believed in being proactive.

So he stuffed himself.

Did he pop a few antacid tablets? We’ll never know– that would put me over the limit. 😊
