The Great Chicken-Slayer

Our son was only six at the time, so when he came to his father and asked if he could go kill a chicken, Matt, being a bit distracted and presuming this was all in play said, “Sure.” Off our son went in search of chicken to kill… .

A short while later, a very pleased “Chicken-Slayer” arrived with his prey. Thankfully, it was only a dead peep in his hands and not a full-grown chicken! Of course, the dead peep was still more than Matt had bargained for. It presented the challenge of explaining cross-culturally, with his still limited language ability, the “why” behind the fact that our son had just killed someone’s peep! Thankfully, they saw the humor in the situation!
