    Not sure if chickens are everywhere now or if I just perk up at the mention of a chciken. Today I came across this in today's Seattle Weekly.

    Dear Uptight Seattleite,

    Neighborhood guidelines require that my neighbors sign a consent form before I'm allowed to keep chickens in my backyard. Everyone signed except this one woman. What should I do?
    Chick Blicked

    Dear Chick Blicked,

    Tick, tick, tick...Ding! Time for the ol' eggs-followed-by-origami routine! Deliver to her doorstep a dozen eggs snugly wrapped up in an old-timey picnic basket. A week later deliver another basket, this time containing a dozen delicate origami boxes. Enclose a note explaining that these boxes represent the dozen million cubic miles of pollution produced when a single carton of eggs is shipped to the supermarket. Faced with such a poetic expression of the cost of not eating locally, she will surely sign your little chicken form.

    I like that idea. I just hope the neighbor likes eggs. One of my neighbors don't mind the chickens, but is allergic to eggs.
