In my attempt to be "green" and keep my home a healthy place, I leave the doors open a lot. It is supposed to be one of the best ways to get rid of toxins in the home (that and removing shoes). Well this week, I discovered that we might need to invest in some screens. During the kids nap I was visited by a little friend. He was not excited to have found his way into my home and I was none too thrilled to meet him either!
It was Mom problem solving time. I grabbed the broom to help him find his way out. If I got close though, he went crazy. I was not up for a bird attack. Time for plan B. Call the husband, he will know what to do! Husband puts me on speaker phone at work. They all have different ideas for me, but everytime I get near the bird, the bird freaks out and I scream. This led to roaring laughter from the accountants. Clearly not helpful. Richard says it would take him 30 minutes to get here to help me. I did not want to hang out with the bird for half an hour! Time for plan C. Damsel in distress call to the neighbors. My neighbor bravely walks in, confronts the bird, scoops him into a bucket, covers the bucket and then releases the bird! Yay! Free at last! Apparently this is the same technique little boys use to catch spiders and frogs. Who knew???
So in the words of Portlandia:
|Birdy on my new drapes. NO!|
|Birdy on the highchair!|
I hope everyone has a great and bird drama free weekend!
