I fondly remember my father teaching me how to feed frogs by tying a string to a long twig and placing a pumpkin petal on the end, shaking the twig as though fishing. The frog would then hop over for a munch.
I scared the chicken and made it run away, and I chased the chicken. In about 10 seconds, the chicken would forget all about what had happened, and walked leisurely again. So it was fun because I didn’t feel guilty about frightening the chicken because I knew the chicken would forget it soon.
