I AM the Big Metal Chicken
« on: October 07, 2011, 09:22:42 AM »
For all of you born in 1981 or before the Chinese New Year in 1982 (because the zodiac doesn't switch over until that date), this is interesting:

The zodiac animal for 1981 is the Rooster (or male chicken).

Also, associated with each year is one of five elements: Water, Fire, Metal, Earth and Wood (the element changes every two years).

The element for 1981 is Metal.

Therefore, we are all Big Metal Chickens  ;D

(I happen to be a 5'5" Metal Chicken).

Aw, I'm a little too late.  I'm a water dog, which doesn't sound nearly as cool.  :(

My daughters loved that story. Son and husband..not so much.

However, we did buy our own metal chicken. It's about 6" high and named Mike. He hangs on the wall and has a hook to hold our car keys.

"Where's the key to the jeep?"

"Have you checked Mike?"  ;D

A friend of mine shared that story with me after a particularly horrendous day at work. I thought it was so hysterical I shared it with mom, who normally just gives me a fish eye look when I share something I find funny, but she thought that was great.

That is the greatest blog post ever.  I was going to say top 5 but I can't even think of one that comes close,  Oh wait, there was one about dogs in an elk carcass and then the sweet potato incident.  Those are the top three.

The sweet potato incident never fails to have me in hysterics.  When I'm having a bad day, I pull it up and read it to make myself feel better.  I can just picture the sneaky dog digging it out of who knows where

Another Big Metal Chicken here born in the Year of the Dog.

Does that mean I chase myself around the yard?
