i almost think an unfocused picture is like a work of art. like an oil painting. and it is up to you to identify the subject, the meaning, the setting, etc.

So while we were heading back to campus, we witnessed some people trying to "herd" a chicken into an apartment complex. Well the chicken wasn't having that. His train of thought probably was something along the lines of apartment > kitchen > dinner. So he opted to cross the road. Cars stopped. Literally a dozen cars stopped for a chicken crossing the road. No one honked. None were upset. It was a perfectly ironic moment. The chicken, though he is probably in fact a rooster, crossed the road to say hi to us! He admired himself in a shop window and we kinda all just chilled. UNTIL the chicken whisperer came. A random guy, or so we thought...the chicken whisperer picked up our new friend and decided to become a proud papa for the day.

Q: Why did the chicken cross the road?
A: To escape the frat house and hundreds of drunk people who would be arriving later that evening.
