JUST LIKE LITTLE HALF CHICK

Remember the folktale, Little Half Chick?

Well, meet Little Half Egg.  That's right, Little Half Egg.

You see, its creator (yours truly) was experimenting with decorative cement recipes and failed to mix the correct amount needed to fill the mold.   Nothing to show for the effort but half an egg.  A frickin' half-a$$ed egg.

See?

Wait, let's flip it around.

Look any better?  Nope, not really.

Even Little Half Chick ended up with a permanent and dignified position living atop a cupola.  One such as that is useless to Little Half Egg.  Perhaps he'll have to settle for a desk job.

As a paperweight.

Enjoy the rest of this beautiful weekend, folks.  And remember, laughing at oneself is the greatest form of flattery AND the best medicine.

  1. I like it! In a flowerbed it would look half-buried....Looks like a little face.... I see possibilities here.... You make me smile!

  2. Thanks, Brooke. I think nestling it in the garden sounds like a good decorative solution (once all the snow melts away). Until then, it remains an "oops" in my eyes..... but with potential.
