Friday Night Highlights – by JM
Here we are, 11:00 pm on Friday night, having a low key late night alone. The weather is cool outside and about 85 inside. As we sit here, we are thinking of something fun we could do this evening and it comes into our thoughts: The Chickens. Those little bastards that wake us up at 4:00 am each morning.
So, we decide to put on our headlamps and go feed the little #$*&*&#$*.
They hear us coming. Mostly because they know instinctually that anyone who comes from our direction comes bringing gifts. When we throw out the rotten tomatoes and the other scraps of food they lazily move from their comfortable perches to investigate what new foods they are being afforded. They thoroughly enjoy the tomato seeds and the mango skins, and try to avoid choking down the onion skins that are mixed in. They move slowly, as if in total distain of having been woken up in the middle of the night. We feel slightly guilty.
Nevertheless, we have a good laugh with the excitement of having woken them all up, hopefully out of a great chicken dream. It is our infrequent moment of revenge, and we enjoy the night thoroughly! Maybe they won’t start their miserable morning serenade until 6:00 am tomorrow.
