The doctor says I'll be fine.

I just got back from the doctor. Fortunately, I'm going to live. Imagine my alarm this morning when I got out of the shower and noticed feathers in my drain. Fairly sure a large bird hadn't somehow infiltrated my plumbing, I used a mirror to inspect my back for plumage.

I was diagnosed with a little-known condition called Turkey Overload Malady, or TOM. I was lucky. My doctor saw 3 much more serious cases of TOM just this morning. Had we not caught it in time, I'd be chortling by Tuesday, walking like a land fowl by Wednesday and pecking the ground by Thursday.

Along with a prescription for a 6 month turkey-free diet, doc gave me free advice to get rid of the Solanum tuberosum buds.
