which came first?

15 Nov which came first?

Last night’s dinner: Chicken and broccoli.

B: “Where does chicken come from? eggs?”
Me: “No, chicken comes from chickens.”
B: “Chickens?!”

I braced myself for her outrage. Maybe even tears. My 4-year-old declaring herself a vegetarian. Instead, B paused mid-bite, stared down at her plate, thought about it for a moment, and then said “yeah, but where do chickens come from?”

Me: “Eggs.”

Crisis averted.

    When Lilly was about that age, she informed me that the chickens must bring the chicken into the grocery store late at night when no one was looking and that is why it was called chicken … because it came from the chickens.
