TURDucken

“Turducken is a dish consisting of a de-boned chicken stuffed into a de-boned duck, which itself is stuffed into a de-boned turkey. Turducken is a portmanteau of turkey, duck, and chicken or hen.” – 100 words.


      “What’s that?” I ask wide-eyed, peeking over the stovetop on my tiptoes. I inspect the bird from a variety of angles, unblinking. A turkey, but bigger. Perhaps even, stretched, and deformed in some places. I play the scene from Alien where a writhing space monster explodes from a man’s chest, over in my head. I back off quickly, hands up in a defensive karate chop position. It remains still. Giving it the once over, I cautiously lower my arms.
      “It’s a Turducken, for Thanksgiving.” My dad slides a recipe across the tabletop. I read the first line of description.
      Ew.
