When our nephew and Godchild was younger, he had a t-shirt that said
"They say I have A.D.D. but I think they're full of....
Oh Look, a chicken"
Well, this quickly became the punch line anytime one of us has a moment where we quickly change thoughts and conversations mid stream while someone is trying to follow along.
The person who is trying to follow along will call the talker back to reality by saying "Oh Look, a chicken" bringing to the talkers attention ( what little there is of it) that they abruptly went off on a tangent mid stream.
My nephew I will add, now grown, has an acronym on his license plate that spells, oh look a chicken.
Getting to the real story here ( and proving my point just a little bit) the other evening , my husband and i took a quick dip in the pool and shortly thereafter heard the dog barking so we looked around and this chicken was walking into our yard.
We have no idea where it came from and it wandered all around the yard and garden for awhile.
I couldn't help but say, yup, you guessed it.
Then I guess the heat combined with 12 hour workdays are getting to me, but I just had to ask,
" so tell me, why exactly did you cross that road?"
Then i thought of taking a picture and jumped out of the pool to grab my camera saying " I need to get a picture for Patty"
At which time my husband said "who's Patty?"
They say my nephew is a lot like me but I think-
We noticed it wandered down the street to my studio and stayed around for a few days leaving piles of unpleasantries on the steps before disappearing.
"Oh Look, chicken s---"
