Roger Bowls A Turkey

Trifecta: Week Ninety-Two

TURKEY

1: a large North American gallinaceous bird (Meleagris gallopavo) that is domesticated in most parts of the world
2: failure, flop; especially : a theatrical production that has failed
3: three successive strikes in bowling
4: a stupid, foolish, or inept person

The Sherbrooke Rockets had been on the cusp of winning the U.S. Bowling championship so many times they could almost taste it.

As they sat around the night before the final playoff game talking strategies, Roger absent mindedly polished his favourite ball.

Suddenly a genie appeared..

I suppose you want me to grant you a wish

Oh wow! I really want to bowl a turkey tomorrow

What will you give me in return?

I have nothing of value. I promise you my first-born child

Agreed. It shall come to pass

*poof * the genie was gone.

The next day the team was on fire with Roger leading the way with the promised turkey. After all the photos had been taken with “their” trophy the teammates slapped Roger on the back.

That was a mighty big sacrifice you made for the team

Hell, it was nothin’ I got a vasectomy five years ago

    Ha! I have to be honest: I thought the genie was going to turn Roger’s ball into an actual turkey, which made me groan. I was THRILLED to see you didn’t go down that obvious path. You got me! Well done. 🙂

    Clever, clever. Let’s hope the genie doesn’t come back for revenge.

    Ha! Genie should have done his research. What good is all that cosmic power if he can’t look up medical records?
    Thank you for linking up!

    I agree! Clever, clever to outwit a genie!

    Ha! Way to dupe a genie. Cute.

    That was a safe exchange then. Unless there’s a child out there Roger knows nothing about… Great fun story.
