Too many painkillers?
I am an avid gardener who was recently laid up with a broken pelvis from an auto accident. (I sure wish I had planned my garden more accessibly) Anyway I was sitting next to my watergarden, drinking my coffee, and my rooster and one of my hens walks by and they're clucking to each other about the weather, or whatever. Then they kind of have to walk around my ramp to their feed dish (it's empty) and then, their tone gets real complainy like "I can't believe she's just sitting there" and "We don't have any food yet" or "She sure is lazy" etc. Then another hen comes around the corner and clucks to me like "hi" so I say "hi" back. Then she gets to the food dish and she gets all "surprized about the food" and I swear it all was directed at me. Now, the dogs have been very patient, and the cat has been more than affectionate, but the chickens...it's all about them. The compassion center in a chicken brain is a very underdeveloped organ.
So what do you think? Too much time on my hands or should I slow down on the vicodin?
