Not Again . . .

As I was driving home from taking the kids to school this morning 5 or 6 robins flew in front of my car. One of them landed right in front of my tire. There was a noticeable bump. I think the bird I took out this morning was suicidal. Still it seems very unfair to make me the unwilling participant in his death wish.

The birds...THE BIRDS!!! *Runs screaming with hands over head*

Wait...was this an attack after you picked your kids up from school?!? DUDE! You are in so much danger!

Don't get any gas. You could be attacked by birds and drop the gas hose thinger and the gas could run down the street to where a guy who is smoking is sitting and he could drop his cigar, igniting the free flowing gas, and then you'd be blown to bits. This would of course spark a major bird attack and everyone in your town would be killed.

(SO glad I don't live in Lis's town!)

You are lucky, though. As Mythbusters has shown, it is very difficult to light free-flowing gas and almost impossible to get it to cause your car to explode. The fumes, now that's another thing, but you don't have to worry about the guy with the cigar. It is your cigar that is the problem.

You know how in "Enchanted" (and other disney movies it is making fun of) the princess calls the animals to help with chores? You appear to have this power Lis...but in the process it seems to kill them (or they kill themselves.) I guess that in reality, birds would rather die than join in housework. Can't blame them. That's enough playing "Enchanted" for a while. OK dear? Do your own housework like the rest of us.

So, when I was at BYU I was (at one point) a daytime custodian at the Tanner Building. I know, how does this "dirty past" of mine tie into your reality? Well, the LAMEST part of the daytime custodial job at the TNRB was cleaning up all the dead birds that had flown headfirst into the many mirrored windows of the TNRB. That was the first time I realized how stupid birds are, and why I really wanted to finish my degree. At least you got the birds before they'd sat dead in the nice hot sunshine for a few days.
So, you're like, the mobil tanner building. The birds are just drawn to you and can't stop themselves from flying headlong into your path. Maybe they're like your secret admirer. They are attracted to your edginess.

I agree with Vigues.

Those birds are so Emo.
