Good Night: An Oddly Carnivorous Bedtime Thought

Each night as I tuck Izzy into bed, I read a book to him and then tell him made up stories in the dark. I assure you our story had nothing to do with the following:

Tonight, when the stories were over, his small voice inquired, "Mama, can we eat a chicken's head?"

Me (thinking what or where did you get an idea like that): "No, I don't think so. They probably don't have much meat on them. Why do you ask?"

Izzy: "I think I would like to try one tomorrow."

Good night, sleep tight and don't let the chicken heads bite..or rather don't bite them.

Haha I'm not even sure what to say to that, but you're right about the meat part.

Maybe you can level with him and roast a pig head. I love pig cheek skin.

It is one thing to eat pig cheeks but roasting an entire pig's head goes into other realms I am not quite sure I would like to enter. Makes me think of the big square in Marrakesh where everyone munches on whole lamb heads..quite a sight.
