Chicken Collection

When I was a child my mother decorated her kitchen in geese and blue and geese with blue ribbons. I didn't think much of it. But then as I visited my friend's houses I realized that their mother's kitchen were decorated in the same theme. And even today I will catch glimpses of blue and geese leftover in kitchens from the 1980's. As an adult I have wondered what the appeal was. I have seen other themes over the years. My mother-in-law has cows in her kitchen. As I started my own kitchen collection it never occured to me to have an animal-theme in my kitchen.

But that has changed.

I must have a chicken-kitchen.

It even rhymes.

My best buddy got me a chicken for my birthday. A whimsical chicken. I don't even particularly like chickens. Its what the chicken represents. It does not represent towels . . . or maybe I need chicken-kitchen towels . . . I do. I think I need chicken-kitchen towels. Whimsical chicken-kitchen towels. To match my whimsical chicken.

My 35th year is starting off with a bang with my chicken. Its so nice to be loved by someone so much that you get a chicken. At least its not a tire.
