Bobby told me a story about one of his first experiences as a commissioned officer after graduating from the Air Force Academy. After coming back from Thanksgiving break to an introductory course for all lieutenants, he had a conversation with another young lieutenant. It went something like this:
Lieutenant: “So did you have fun over break?”
Bobby: “Yeah, I spent some time with family. I ate too much, watched some football, etc.”
Lieutenant: “What’d you have to eat?!?”
Bobby: “You know, the usual….turkey, po…<interrupted>.”
Lieutenant: “Oh my gosh! I had toy-key (turkey) tooo!”
Bobby told me he was thinking, “wow we both ate turkey on Thanksgiving!” So now, anytime the word “turkey” comes up, Bobby says “I had toy-key toooo!” I think this may only be funny to us. Anyway….
