As I write this it is my boy’s 10th birthday. And if you follow my blog you’ve seen my boy. You’ve read his guest posts. And know that’s he a powder keg of energy, wit, and smarts. Makes a momma proud!!
And, I wanted to write something special…just for him. You know, a tear jerker. And then I was like…”who am I kidding? I don’t make people cry.” and also “Levi doesn’t read your blog, he won’t even know”.
So instead, I decided to repost my favorite post he has ever done. This is my favorite post on my entire blog. Ever. I will always cherish this post…it shows the humor, wit, patience, intelligence, and brattiness of Levi. And gosh darn I love that boy!
So, let me introduce you to my boy. My 10 year old boy (tear, sniff, cry)…
Today I would like to introduce you to my son Levi.
Levi is 8 years old, smart and funny, and stinking adorable.
He is in the 3rd grade, a great video game player, and all around fabulous kid.
He was given a book for Christmas that taught him lots of new things…some of which he tried.
He wanted to share one of those new things with you today.
How to hypnotize a chicken.
(He was also compensated for this blog post…a going rate of $5.00)
So here is his first, all by himself (except me typing) blog post.
Take it away Levi!
This information is from “The Boy’s Book, How To Be the Best at Everything” by Dominique Enright and Guy Macdonald.
This will work on any chicken. If you want to do this you choose a chicken, you want to pick one that doesn’t really care about stuff. In my experience, it was a very crazy chicken. You want the chicken to know that you are the boss. Hold it so that it know’s you are the boss but don’t hurt it.
Lay it on it’s side and so the wing is tucked in. The side of it’s head is laying on the floor too.
Put your index finger against its beak. I read it as it works in the dirt probably better.
But, you put your index finger on its beak and you drag a one foot line from its beak and tell it a calm word so it doesn’t feel scared.
It will go into a trance but, to wake the chicken up all you have to do is raise your voice until it gets out of its trance and runs away.
If you don’t have a chicken ask someone to try it out on their chicken.
If you can’t get it out of it’s trance just buy it for supper.
Cause if you can’t get it out of it’s trance then they don’t have to live with a chicken that doesn’t really do anything.
This is me holding the chicken to get it ready to flip it over.
Or if you simply enjoyed it :).
