The chickening resumes

You may not remember, but Allison and Julianne (mostly Allison) have a lot of fun "chickening" their friends at camp each summer. And at church sometimes. Or at a quiz once in a while.

At last month's quiz, Allison got a her friends. A chicken finger puppet. She thought it was cute and fun.

Our friends left the quiz for vacation at lunchtime but't over yet.

The next week at quiz practice, the kids' aunt came in just to deliver something that they had forgotten to take to the quiz. Allison's friend, Josh, asked her the other day what she thought of the second gift.

She responded by telling him that she'd read the instructions and found them interesting. "First", she said, "You wring its neck. Then you put the eggs in. Then you stick the head back on, then the eggs come out its rear end."

Josh had been warning Allison that he would "have his revenge at the quiz". She didn't think the puppet was too bad. But the chicken Ick. So icky, in fact, that she wants to make sure she takes it to quiz practice so she can offer him some gum.

I'm pretty sure she's already plotting her next chickening adventure.

  1. I have actually seen these little critter dispensers that deposit something less innocent than eggs. Lets just say it' brown. So the eggs don't seem all that icky, but I know how you hate chickens so I understand your loathing:>)

  2. Funny!

    These things can take on a life of their own.

    My mom and a friend went back and forth with a bit of string that one of them pulled off the back of the other. It was wrapped and given as a gift many times, until her friend painted a wooden plaque with a bunny on it and the string glued on as a tail and it said "all good things must come to an end."


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with me!
