Girls gone Wild- Shenandoah

Where did this come from? And why?

Where did this come from? And why?

Cross my heart, we did not buy this! So why is it in the house?

Well, b/c the mater was attempting to corner the VA market in brass candlesticks. After negotiating $10 for 14 of them, she saw more in a basket. It was near the end of the day, so the gal said, “Give me a dollar, and take the whole thing.”

So, after having spent a good 10 hrs stopping at one sale after another, eating weird Chinese food at a mall, and sundaes @ a frozen kustard stand, we unpacked, and the little hussy had included all kinds of weird, unsalable things in the basket. Of which Ms Chicken is prime exhibit #1. Do you want to hear about the chipped statuette of a person of unresolved gender preference? Or perhaps the bookend depicting equine/canine inappropriate behavior?

What I’d like to know is:

  1. Who came up with these ideas?
  2. Who bought them in the first place?
  3. How the heck do we get rid of them?

At any rate, we did get a whole lot of good stuff. Brass candlesticks, natch. A parisian dress pour moi. Several books we hadn’t read. Lots of canisters for all the bizarre non-flour flour substitiutes the gluten-intolerant require.

And three copies of a CD by an obsure Bluegrass band. WTF?

Next stop, Rio Mall… but first a quick trip to the dump, in the dead of night.

    NO NO NO, Sara. NOT the dump. Don’t you have a well or a midden? Archeologists love wells and middens. They find odd items and write long articles postulating (i.e., making up) stuff about the culture that tossed the items in there long ago. These items belong in a well or midden. Only with such attention to providing feed material can we guarantee sufficient distraction for future archeologists and cultural anthropologists. I believe these three items will engender future theories about a VA-based, orgiastic cult of the Great Chicken Goddess way back in the 21st century.
    p.s. – Parisian dress? Your loyal readers are intrigued.

    You could make a fortune on eBay with those items. They might even sell for more than a Jesus-shaped Cheeto.

    I want to see that dress too! 🙂

    I can’t explain it – I want that chick.

    I think it’s the shoes…

    OK, sold to the Leo with the hair! Send me your current snail mail, & Chick-lette is yours. (Gosh, I feel like an enabler or something!)

    You do know it glitters? she said ominously.
