• Day 341: Are You Too Chicken to Read This?

    Date: 2011.01.26 | Category: Uncategorized | Tags:

    My friend Erik Sherman and I have a lot in common.  True, I didn’t go to MIT like him (teensy issue with my math SATs,) but I’ve got a spiritual slide rule in my pocket.

    Erik lives in my home state of Massachusetts and writes for a living from his home, like me.  More important, he has a flock of chickens (at left.)  I never tire of hearing news about them on his Facebook page.

    In fact, I was brooding about them what with the record, subzero temps back home and was relieved when Erik announced last week he was going to install a heat lamp in their coop.

    Well, you can imagine what happened next. We started imagining. And by “we” I mean all of us geeks (see MIT above) like Erik’s and my friend, the writer, Linda Lenzen Treiber, and others who like to have pun.

    For me, at least, having an eggstraordinarily sweet thread like this for distraction is the next best thing to having a big block of milk chocolate at my side while I work.

    Chickens’ heat lamp is on and the red glow has issued forth. I expect the mirror ball to descend any minute. Instead of break dancing, they will probably do beak dancing. Or the Funky Chicken.
