Lots of talk about chickens goin on around here.
BB was very curious about my fertilizer.
It came very highly recommended from a number of reliable sources.
BB had questions.
He was not convinced.
He said, “this is chicken poop?”
I said, “yep”
He said, “Chickens poop?”
him, “No way.”
and so it went.
He might still be uncertain were it not for the fact that he smelled it and wrinkled up his nose and said well maybe it is.
Just the other night I was sitting with the boys while they were falling asleep.
Somehow they got to talking about chickens again.
This time it was about eggs.
MC”hey BB, you know where the eggs come out?”
MC”Well, they don’t poop them out…and they don’t pee them out…so, there is this space between where the chickens poop and pee. Right there it is! So, just go up to a chicken and look where the penis should be, only there isn’t one and that is where the eggs come out see? They come out the chicken hole!”
BB, “Yeah, okay.”
I say nothing.
Seems MC has it all figured out…and I’ll not correct him or he might refuse to eat eggs because they don’t actually have an exit all their own.
His brother will believe ANYTHING he says…most anything anyway.
Lots of people do actually.
MC has an air of authority about him when he shares his grand ideas.
