Where you keep your chickens?

Annie had her cousin Ruby over today.    I was tired of being Cinderella's evil stepsister, so I kinda beg my sister to barrow one of hers and Ruby was available.  Wow, they were so great.  I wasn't asked to play once, they were so busy.    I can't tell you what a relief that was.   After playing inside for a few hours Annie asked me "where uby's chicken boots, mama?"  "I don't know if Ruby has chicken boots, why?"  "Her need um, so I show my babies to her."  I quickly dig out a pair of old crocs for Ruby, and Annie gets her chicken boots on.    The two walk out to the coop hand in hand and start talking.  Ruby gets to see Harold (the chic she named), but does not want to touch her.    Her expression is part fear, part disgust.   The girls continue talking after I show Ruby which one she had named.   I pick up parts of the conversation.  Annie asks Ruby, "where you keep your chickens?"  Ruby replies, "oh, I don't know."  Annie, "You could keep em here."   Ruby, "O.K."    It was really hard to not laugh, they were so cute.  If your wondering Ruby does not have chickens.
