Jenny gave us 154 words today, including the prompt which is "If I die young" Sadly i needed about 250 words to tell this properly so you will have to pardon my abruptness. I have broken one of Jenny's golden rules this week "no pictures allowed" I wanted to finish the story so i had to throw in the photo ... oh i hope Jenny will not be mad ... and i hope the other Centaurians are not angered ... but at least i am admitting to my wrong doing, can forgiving myself and correcting my behaviour be far behind?
We were stopped at our favourite rural burger stand, just off the highway, surrounded by scenery and picnic tables.
I picked up my order, a hot chorizo and of course a handful of napkins.
The trees were lined with birds. Unbeknownst to me, the crows conspired with the wind to create a gust of wind that sent my napkins across the park. As I chased the napkins, my daughter started waving to me from the stand. I turned back to the table to notice that the crows had carried away my meal.
Two weeks ago while driving, a crow flew up from the road straight at my car. My daughter burst in to tears as the bird hit the windshield with a thud.
Okay, I am calling this even, until this morning when I looked out the window to the deck and saw this …
If I die young you know who is responsible.
