My daughter was handing out feathers from our rooster yesterday at school. One of the other moms asked her where the feathers came from. DD: From George Other mom: Who's George? DD (Very matter of fact): Our rooster who we ate. Other mom (shocked look of horror on her face): .... uh.... She looks at me in an "is she serious" way, jaw hanging open. Me: Yeah, we raise chickens and we need to do something with the extra boys. The other mom quickly backs off and scurries away... meanwhile, her teachers (who know we eat our chickens) are CRACKING up in the background. They thought it was one of the funniest things they heard all week!! Please tell me that I am not alone in having my child alienate other parents??
