Last Sunday I decided to spend a few hours at the beach. I met up with a friend, and as we were talking, all of the sudden he got this strange look on his face – apparently a bird let loose all over the back of his neck! I couldn’t help but laugh. It reminded me of the time I went to Atlantic City with an old boyfriend.
‘Dwayne’ (*all names have been changed to protect the poor innocent saps involved) happened to have a deathly fear of birds. Now, as anyone who has been to Atlantic City knows, you can’t walk a foot without encountering at least a few seagulls.. As we walked the boardwalk, I took in the beautiful view and salty air while he held my hand in a death grip. Every time a bird approached he’d squeeze my hand tighter. All of the sudden, he looked down and there was a growing stain on his pants. No, it wasn’t from him – a bird had pooped all over his pant leg! I think I still have the picture of him standing there, arms akimbo, bird poop on his pants with a slightly scared/slightly annoyed look on his face..
They say it’s good luck when a bird poops on you. I’d have to say, from the looks of it, it’s really just awkward and gross! Unfortunately I don’t keep up with ‘Dwayne’ anymore, so for all I know he could have gone on to win the lottery… But I seriously doubt it.
