I know I left you last on the edge of your seat, just waiting to see what imprint Sticky Chicken would leave on his visit to DC. Unfortunately, Sticky Chicken didn't get an audience with the President or even Pelosi, but he did have a fantastic time playing tourist.
The day started on the Metro. A quiet, uneventful ride for most, but being poultry, it was quite exciting for Sticky Chicken. He's used to being cooped up, you know and just getting out of the peck and scratch of his day-to-day was a thrill to crow about. Here he is enjoying his ride.
Clearly, Sticky Chicken had had quite enough of prehistoric creatures and crowds so we headed next to the Museum of American History. This was much better, fewer people, smaller exhibits. We saw many amazing inventions, an impressive toaster (yes, that's what I said) collection from the 1920's and 1930's, and the evolution of the light bulb.
But the highlight of the day for our little friend was found in the Popular Entertainment collection...Dorothy's Ruby Slippers from the Wizard of Oz. I've never seen a chicken so excited over a pair of 70 year-old sequined shoes! The line to see the shoes was quite long and I worried for a moment that the Perdue flashbacks might start up again, but Sticky Chicken courageously winged his way up to the plexi-glass case and ogled those shoes. Strange behavior, don't you think, for a chicken, especially one without feet.
