Never to be out quoted from Leona, here is a gem from Lex , said this morning at around 7:30 ….
Me: “Lex, you know in those PJ’s you are wearing, your legs look like chicken drumsticks.”
Lex: “I know Mum , you’ve told me before. But remember, I’m a human. Which means I wouldn’t have as much chicken under my skin.”
Me: “Pardon? You have chicken under your skin?”
Lex rolls his eyes.”All humans have chicken under their skin Mum. It’s just, not as much chicken as chickens.”
Me: “Ah. I don’t think they do sweetie. Humans have flesh.”
Lex looks very confused at this. ” Wait, so if I cooked my legs they wouldn’t taste like chicken?”
Lex: “So what animals do taste like chicken?”
Me: “Mainly just erm… chickens.”
Lex: ” But what about cows and pigs? If they aren’t made out of chicken then what are they?”
Me: “Other meat.”
Lex, still looking confused. ” Heh. But meat is chicken. Silly Mummy.” Walks away shaking his head.
