Pessimistic Optimism

Life as I see it… sort of.

Raw Chicken Good

My son has some strange eating habits, but it keeps him happy.  His favorite meal used to be the fat that we cut off of our steaks.  I know it’s not supposed to be good for him, but he really likes it.

The other day we accidentally found a new favorite food for him, raw chicken.  I was cutting up boneless skinless chicken for some Chicken and Marshmallows  and unbeknownst to me one of the strips fell to the floor and he found it.  I noticed it in his hands, but thought he was smart enough not to eat it and since I really enjoyed playing with slimey things when I was a kid I let him keep it.

I turned my head for a second and the little carnivore took a bite.  Oops!  I snatched the rest of it away from him and I ran it under the water to get the dog hair off and then I cut it into bite-size pieces so he wouldn’t choke.  That was a close call.

I hope chicken goes on sale again soon because he’d eat this everyday if he could.

  2. Concerned,
    It’s been two months now and his diarrhea has finally stopped. The good thing is that he’s been able to keep his weight down to a trim twenty-five lbs. The cost of the diapers has been the only downside… that and the smell in our house.

  3. WOW…I know somebody who has been eating raw chicken for years. I mean NOT as a meal. While this person is perparing it, this person will take several bites.
    This has been happening for almost 30 years. Thank GOD they never go sick. Now with bird flu begin to scare the world – I am more concern.

  7. […] these comments sent me into a tizzy that led to my most viewed, and probably stupidest post called Raw Chicken Good.  The comment from imhelendt was misinterpreted by my hypersensitive ego and sent me into an […]

  8. My good god are you the babysitter from hell? Not only have you let your child eat somthing from the kitchen floor but raw chicken no less. I just cant get over this, Please if there is anyone else stupid enough to do this I beg them to eat it first and wait to see what happens before you try to kill your child with it.
