Chicken fat…

Great-grandma liked to use chicken fat

to moisturize her hands and she claimed

it worked better than all those expensive

creams from the drug store – a waste of

money, she’d say, and look at my hands

after so many years, with wrinkles from

hard work but imagine how rough they’d

be if not for the chicken fat; it fascinated

us although we just couldn’t bring ourselves

to try it even once, but we did notice that

the dog liked Great-grandma most of all.
