I downloaded this app yesterday. It's an idea generator. I thought it'd be a fun writing tool. You press the button and it combines words together in ways that may trigger creativity. My first "Scenario" was this:

A turkey writing love letters to a paraplegic.

Here's what I wrote:

Dear Tom,

Sorry to hear about your paraplegia. My cousin had that once. He ended up getting honey dumped all over him and smoked to death. I sincerely hope that doesn’t happen to you. I hear it’s a real stinker. Are you laughing as hard as I am right now? Stinker. Get it? ‘Cause of the smoke. Sometimes I crack myself up. Anyways...

I guess I’m writing because you gotta be just bored out of your mind. I figured a letter from the turkey living in your back 40 might brighten your day. How many of your non-paraplegic friends can say they got a handwritten letter from a turkey? Exactly. So yeah, hang in there. If you’re gonna lay around all day you might consider asking someone you trust to cover you in leaves or branches or blankets that look like leaves. Last thing you want is for some gun-toting hillbilly to find you lazing around. Chances are pretty good he’ll shoot your face off and not even feel bad about it. Life is tough. Just do it. (I’m trying to remember the Gatorade slogan. Seems applicable.) Dangit, I’m drawing a blank.

Alright. Feels like I should close this awesome letter (sarcasm!) with saying, “Love, Turkey.” But we’ve actually never met. And I don’t see you walking your back 40 anytime soon. So...

Casually Concerned But Open To Deeper Feelings Someday,
