We recently put a bid on a house that is being sold as a short sale. Sadly, we got outbid, but when I was trying to explain to Munchkin how looooong it takes for a "short" sale, he asked, "Does it take the same amount of time to grow a chicken? About the same time as a baby chicken to grow up and then some more?"
I have no idea where he got this since we've never had chickens and don't even know anybody who has chickens, but he was about right!
