Mensagem:  Hey. Playing tennis cold turkey = playing tennis without advance preparation ; ad lib ; impromptu. You even learn to drive cold turkey (not knowing an A from a Z about motor vehicles) when your curious or venturous self decides it will do it at first seeing it. You can even pilot a Saturn V rocket cold turkey, though NASA flight controllers would pretty much doubt you have the expertise to get it off the ground. If only you could put yourself in cold turkey mode...

... as did a Márcio once back in the Army as a mocorongo recruit. Long story better left untold.
