This weekend Joel and I were walking through the mall to get him a new battery for his watch. As I walked by the Bon Ton I noticed a display of items for 70% off. Naturally, it called to me. Joel on the other hand was on a mission. Here's the best news he's ever gotten, I'm a fast shopper. As I quickly scanned the table there was lime colored plastic picnic wear, random summer cast-offs, and finally my chicken.
Number one, I liked that it was white off the bat. Number two, it was 70% off. I wandered over to the cashier for her to price check the final price. She rang it up to a grand total of just over $6. Sold!
As we walked away the follow conversation ensued:
Joel: What do you do with it?
Amy: It's for decoration.
Joel: Do you put something in it? Should we paint it?
Amy: We are not painting it. No we don't have to put something in it.
Joel: It doesn't even look like a chicken. People who grew up on a farm wouldn't need this.
Amy: It's like an accessory for our home. Like when you get dressed and add accessories to tie an outfit together.
Joel: *blink* *blink*
Well I like it. Joel doesn't understand the purpose but said, "well whatever makes you happy" when he realized he would never understand my rationale.
What do y'all think?
