You ever seen The Birds? Um, I think we're about to be living it. In the last week there are suddenly Birds! Everywhere! Clark came home last night to report that there were about a dozen birds on our front lawn, in addition to the dozen on our back lawn, in addition to all the birds on the side of the house, and in the trees. They are everywhere! And they make quite the racket at dusk and dawn. Quite. The. Racket. Not that it really bothers me, I'm up long before dawn and in bed long after dusk, but it's a little unnerving.
I know, I should be grateful that it's spring, birds are singing, the weather is lovely, blah blah blah. But dude. Have you seen that movie? It's creepy. And there is no resolution in the end, the birds are still crazy and everywhere, they just run away. And there isn't even any music AT ALL in the whole show, except for when the school children sing their song, which makes it even creepier! And it's happening in my backyard!
I also think it's especially appropriate, because Clark and I talked about how we needed to watch The Birds after the birds were over. Apparently we don't need to watch it. We just need to keep a weather eye out for the actual birds. If you don't hear from us for a few days, send help. The birds are attacking.
