The Deeper Questions

I actually saw a chicken cross the road today.

It was commuting from the rumored meth chemist's house at the end of the street to the Montessori school on the far side, so perhaps we can speculate that health had something to do with the journey? I like to think that I played a small part in this epic moment, as the sight of me on my bike inspired the cautious fowl to scoot a bit faster. Alas, my own speed was too great to stop and investigate further into moods and motivations, so the immortal "why" remains unanswered.

But I can now authoritatively say that chickens do, on occasion, cross the road.
