R and B have been playing “Chicken Out” with Mom and Dad.  The board game involves getting plastic chicken pawns “across the road” safely.  Wild cards, which are played face down, require that players pull their chickens to safety on the side of the road or risk getting “run over” if the wild card reveals the color of the chickens left on the road.

At the dinner table, a few days later:

Mom – B, aren’t you going to finish those noodles?

B – No, I’m going to risk them.

Mom – What do you mean?

B- It means I’m going to leave them there.  They’ll be fine.
