Meemaw: I bowled a new high score last night.

Sheldon’s dad: Nice.

Meemaw: I got two turkeys.

Missy: What’s a turkey?

Meemaw: It’s three strikes in a row.

Missy: Why do they call it a turkey?

Meemaw: Well, when they first invented bowling, they used to just throw frozen turkeys at the pins. Eventually, they switched to balls to cut down on the smell.

Sheldon’s dad: Why you lying to her?

Meemaw: I find it keeps my mind sharp.

Sheldon: Existing in a world of predators isn’t easy, but we prey have developed several natural defenses to help us survive—there’s playing dead, warning calls, camouflage…and, last but certainly not least, good old-fashioned running away. A little screaming never hurts either.
