October 25, 2013 – My goodness, what a remarkable day! I awoke early, just as the sun was starting to rise, and stole a few minutes to myself. I made a pot of tea, ate a handful of raisins and peanuts from the mason jar I keep on the shelf over my nesting box, and did a few stretching exercises to get the blood flowing. I have a bit of an issue when I bend over to touch my toes as air inevitably escapes from my fluffy parts with the “toot-toot-toot” of a party horn. It makes me laugh every time. This morning, it was loud enough to stir my sleeping friends. Wilma thought the emergency siren was sounding. She stumbled off her roost, hurled three colanders indiscriminately into the air and screamed, “SAVE YOURSELVES, WE’RE UNDER ATTACK!” There went my peaceful Zen moment. The coop was a flurry of butts and feathers and screeching half-asleep chickens flying into one another. When the mayhem subsided, I did what anyone in my position would do. First, I laughed and then, I apologized and made everyone breakfast. Later in the day I noticed that someone had drawn a picture of me exercising, and hung it on the wall by my bed. There was a red slash from one corner of the image to the other. The cartoon was done in crayon, so I’m guessing Wilma put the pullets up to the joke. I took out my purple Sharpie and signed my name to the bottom. That, ladies and gentlemen, is what you call owning your celebrity.
