Bird Riot

5 a.m., the house is so quiet, hot and stuffy, no air moving… the dog wants out… I poke my head out the door to feel the cool morning air, and the birds are having a RIOT out there, it’s like stepping into a different dimension, tweetertweeeeterTWEET BLIP BLIP WOOT WHEEET BLIPPY WHOOT TWEEEEEETER TWEEEET… It’s a veritable CACOPHANY, and I don’t use that word lightly… I leave my bedroom door open so I can eavesdrop on all the conversations.. watch the polka-dot sheers waft in and then out the open door…BLEET BLOOP TWITTER TWITTER WOOOP the birds crank it up a notch… and the sheers flutter softly …back…and then forth…. it’s like a dream, I’m waking on Walden Pond or something and I think that thought “the universe is unfolding as it should”… and I’m all dreamy-eyed and philosophical and under the spell of the bird song…  ….  ….  … 

 and then a dew-drenched, muddy-dirt-digging grimy little dog skips back through the wide open door and leaps onto my soft lovely lightest pastel blue Italian sheets..  REALLY?!  She starts the swirling process, the swirling, twirling, grunting, groaning, moof, moof, moof, she says, as she settles in and makes her muddy little nest in my formerly beautiful soft angel-touch sheets… We now look something like this:

Beethoven-and-Charles-Grodin-300x168 Whom I LOVE. Love me some Charles Grodin…. My face looked like that. Not really. 10 years ago, my face would’ve looked like that. But now my face looks like, meh… it’ll wash out. Boo’s all snuggled back in, the birds are still twipping and tweeting, but much less frantically now… the sheets will go in the wash, and the universe… will continue to unfold…

  1. Made my morning! Thanks!

  2. “Aint” it the truth! Just when you are all warm and snuggled in the bed with soft sounds of the outside and the light is so dream-like and beautiful ~ you pet (cat and/or dog) comes bounding in and jumps on the bed to make sure you KNOW they are there…..

And what about Naomi?
