we're camping in the town where The Birds was filmed .. you know - that Alfred Hitchcock horror movie from 1963..? Bodega Bay, California.. there are reminders (threats?!) everywhere, depicting the infamous movie.
outside my trailer are 3 black birds, one of which is highly
unkind brutal to the other two. should i be afraid? i'm concerned the bully is waiting for me to exit my trailer at which time he'll peck my eyes out. all the same, i'll keep my trusty vintage fly swatter close by just in case. i'm sure that'll take care of any imminent danger, hm?
an hour later they're closer to the trailer .. 10 feet from the dinette window. the biggest bird is staring at me... there is something wholly uncomfortable with this situation.
until next time .. i hope. gulp.
