We celebrated St. Francis Day at school. Kids love it. It is when they can bring in their pets or pictures of pets, or stuffed animals, or pineapples as a kid did today, to get blessed by local clergy. I am always torn between loving how excited the kids get and a life-long weariness around animals. This year we had some mini ponies and a cow! And a kid brought her chicken to the library. Did I ever think I’d need to say, “put your chicken away” at my job and it not be a three piece? No I did not!
A Chicken in the Library would be a great book title, btw.
Tonight I am going to meet up with my friend for a belated birthday dinner! And then if I have some energy I will try to start a new book that I have been excited about called The First Rule of Punk!
