6.19 My Best Friend - Chickens

Bestest Friend and I are in the middle of a blog project. Each day of the month we will post a picture on a pre-determined theme and write a little something about it. The theme for the nineteenth day of each month is "My Best Friend."
****************************
Pilgrim fowl are a breed of chicken that sometimes go by a moniker that is my actual name.  At some point, Bestest Friend learned this fact and has taken to sending me chicken-themed things - a calendar with new breeds of chickens every month, greeting cards with chickens on them, you know, chicken things - and so when I recently opened a package of socks she sent me (I LOVE SOCKS!), I was only a little bit surprised when this guy also came out of the package.
I wish you could all see this thing in person. It wobbles on those giant feet, the comb and tail are this clear plastic, and the ceramic is so shiny you could put on your makeup while looking at it.  It goes without saying that I fell in love with it immediately and brought it to my office so that I could look at it while I'm working to cheer me up, right?

Don't you now wish there was a breed of chicken that shared your name?

  1. I was so scared it was going to break! Someday I will get you a real chicken.
    (I really won't. They're dirty and gross. The one I gave you is as cute as they get.)
