    My DH's coworker, Leo, is always teasing me about my "pet chickens."

    A couple weeks ago, he asked if I was going to knit booties for them to wear out in the yard.

    I said, "Of course not! That'd be silly -- they'd never hold up. I was considering making them out of leatherette!"

    He's a good person, just not a chicken person.

    I get teased non-stop by my SO for the way I am about my animals. He's already teasing me about the way I plan on handling my future chickens. He was raised on this farm when it was a commercial chicken farm and that's just not how they did it.
    Still this is the same big, burly cop that asked me again this morning to tell him the 'story' of how I rescued Charlie dog. I swear he gets tears in his eyes every time I tell it too!

    Nobody at work EVER teases me about my chickens, although we all tease each other about everything else under the sun!


    [​IMG] Hmmmm... I must be doing something wrong.
