A Pet Chicken
That was definitely the best line of the day!
He gazed at a fuzzy brown chicken at the petting zoo . Then leaned over to me and said If you come to my birthday party and bring me a pet chicken – dramatic pause—
I interrupted him with Uh, your mom will kill me??
No, no. he assured me. I will give you a watch.
I tried not to laugh, I looked down and tried to regain composure. Luckily to my rescue came another 4 year old’s small sticky hand guiding my chin to look directly at him to listen to his best joke. I looked, he told me something about Bugs Bunny and wascawwy wabbit. I laughed and laughed and laughed!
My day is made!
