What’s the rooster got to do with this post?
I was working on some textures and felt like sharing this photo.
So actually the Rooster does have something to do with this post.
Gar loves roosters, and chickens, and if you love something you project that in the way that you speak about them. And when you show a lot of enthusiasm for something, people tend to remember that.
And here is where we run into trouble.
People like to give you things similar to what you have expressed a “like” about. Which is really wonderful, except when you go from being the guy who likes chickens, to the guy who has ALL of those chickens, as in “wow, does he have a chicken collection or what?"
When do you cross the line?
Or as the joke goes, why did the chicken cross the road?
To find a place to live, it was too crowded in the condo.
So our little place was overrun with chickens, and roosters. We loved them, but at the rate they were reproducing, it was starting to look like a hen house.
Gradually we managed to gracefully wean off our wonderful friends and family members who only thought of us as “chicken collectors” and now think of us as real people again.
Whew, and thank goodness.
So when a friend mentioned chicken collecting during a visit together in a gift shop, we made certain to peck that thought in the bud.
No cluck about it.
Are you the unwitting, or unwilling recipient of a out of control collection? If so what do you collect? Or..do you give certain items to friends, because they collect?
