We're All Just Big Old Hens!


I'm like a big old hen. I can't cluck too long about the egg I've just laid because I've got five more inside me pushing to get out.

Ha! It's been a while since I've laid a new egg, er, started a new story. Maybe I should. Thanks for the fun quote!

I'm just getting ready to push child #5 out into the world of school. Wonder what other gems will be contained within once he's securely on his way?

Oh my, great quote--so true!

Am I the only one who finds that image just a little disturbing? LOL. But I get what he means about fuss less, create more.

I guess each WIP is one really big egg!

Stephanie said...

LOL! That's great!! And I am so there!! I have about 20 story ideas just waiting for me and sometimes it's so frustrating to not have the time to write write write and get to them all!

Eggs are great, all-around.

They're metaphors for everything, and they're delicious fried over-medium with buttery sourdough.

Jealous!

Palindrome said...

I lay more than I know what to do with.

Tracy said...

Well, now I can take it as a compliment when someone calls me a chicken! Er, not that it happens on a regular basis or anything. :)

KLM said...

OK, now I'm craving bacon. Is that normal?

I'm sure there was some obvious crack-some-eggs-to-make-an-omlette joke I could have made, but I decided to go with the bacon. I don't regret it.

Kaylie said...

Wasn't it Charlotte's Web where the goose laid an egg that turned out to be a dud?

Too funny ... thanks for the laugh!
