Nature Is Out To Get Me, Apparently

SO. Let me tell you about my morning. I present to you, a chat between myself and BDH.  AND IT IS ONLY 11 AM, FOR THE LOVE OF DOGE.

CinnamonOpus: hello it’s me

CinnamonOpus: hello from the inside

CinnamonOpus: 😛

BigDamnHero .: Hey sorry

BigDamnHero .: I was meeting with marcel and marc

BigDamnHero .: back at my desk now

CinnamonOpus: OMG I just stepped into a 21st century version of “The Birds”

The feeder was empty, and some chickadees were pecking at the two or three crumbs that were left

So I went out and filled the feeder

And suddenly the chickadees were all OMG FOOD MOVE IN NOW, NOW, NOW!!

They were almost beating me about the head and neck to get to the feeder

OMG SO HUNGRAY WE ARE GONNA DIE

BigDamnHero .: ROFL

CinnamonOpus: And I was all AUUUUGGGGHHHH

BigDamnHero .: Did you feel like anyone….?

BigDamnHero .: (lobs in a soft one)

CinnamonOpus: I FELT LIKE TIPPI HEDREN OUT THERE (It’s a line from “Sports Night. Also, you know, referencing the movie “The Birds”. ~ Ed.)

BigDamnHero .: ROFL

BigDamnHero .: THERE IT IS

BigDamnHero .: There he goes! (It’s a line from “Ed”. SERIOUSLY PEOPLE, DON’T YOU WATCH TV?? ~ Ed.)

BigDamnHero .: LOL

CinnamonOpus: LOL

CinnamonOpus: There. He. Goes.

BigDamnHero .: Heee

CinnamonOpus: Anyway it was hilarious and funny, like if Tippi Hedren had been attacked by tiny wee chickadees instead of crows.

BigDamnHero .: heheh

CinnamonOpus: Also “peck once, then FLY AWAY! Peck once, then FLY AWAY!”

BigDamnHero .: crazy birds

CinnamonOpus: Anyway, they must be starving because they were on the fence AS I WAS HANGING IT UP, then all up in my business as soon as I turned away

BigDamnHero .: you should use the new camera and get some video

CinnamonOpus: WHO KNEW

CinnamonOpus: I went out there thinking birds = scared of people. APPARENTLY NOT SO MUCH.

BigDamnHero .: I expect the birds knew ;-)?

CinnamonOpus: YA THINK

CinnamonOpus: Anyway. I bought some groceries, also <REDACTED XMAS PRESENTS FOR THAT GIRL>.

CinnamonOpus: We’ll have to take stock of what we have and what still needs buying because I could have bought jammies today but I thought I had already done so but when I looked (briefly) I did not see any. So.

BigDamnHero .: ok

BigDamnHero .: Sounds good

BigDamnHero .: Maybe this weekend we can take stock

CinnamonOpus: I BOUGHT ICE CREAM

BigDamnHero .: ooooohhhhh

BigDamnHero .: yay!

CinnamonOpus: So now I am OBLIGATED to make an APPLE SOMETHING

BigDamnHero .: Not really

CinnamonOpus: (probably apple crisp)

BigDamnHero .: but also yay if you do

CinnamonOpus: 😀

CinnamonOpus: IF I DON’T GET PECKED TO DEATH BY SMALL BIRDS FIRST

BigDamnHero .: Wear a hat 😉

CinnamonOpus: Also, as I was going to the car after shopping, a gust of wind came up and TOOK MY RECEIPT

BigDamnHero .: oh no

BigDamnHero .: Son of a

CinnamonOpus: So here’s me, CHASING A RECEIPT ACROSS THE PARKING LOT

BigDamnHero .: (SKIPPING EMOJI) <—like this?

CinnamonOpus: And the wind would blow it under a car, so I would get down under the car to get it and then JUST AS I WAS REACHING THE WIND WOULD BLOW IT AGAIN

CinnamonOpus: fucking wind

CinnamonOpus: fucking receipt

CinnamonOpus: What a bunch of bastards

BigDamnHero .: did you eventually catch it

CinnamonOpus: Yes.

BigDamnHero .: yay!

CinnamonOpus: NATURE IS OUT TO GET ME TODAY.

BigDamnHero .: Well yes

BigDamnHero .: ok any other updates?

CinnamonOpus: Nope that is all.

BigDamnHero .: I am of course (EMOJI WE USE FOR “VERY BUSY AND IMPORTANT”) so I should get back to it

CinnamonOpus: well of course

BigDamnHero .: Thanks for running errands this morning

BigDamnHero .: I appreciate it

CinnamonOpus: np

CinnamonOpus: WATCH OUT FOR SMALL BIRDS.

BigDamnHero .: not a lot of those in the office but I will take it under advisement
