Birdie Rod

Before I begin this story, I should mention I am scared of birds.  Thankfully I live with a professional bird hunter.  Rod knew there was trouble before any of us – very typical. Our first warning came in the form of Rod being newly obsessed with our fireplace.

Really obsessed…

Day 3 and I thought Rod was becoming a serious weirdo.

Then we realized Rod was no fool.  Once again, he had outsmarted us both.

I reacted the way any responsible person does when there is a bird living in their chimney.

There wasn’t a lot we could do while on our lunch break so we vowed to inspect further after work.  Rod reluctantly agreed.

I got home first, unwinding in my usual way.

I carried Rod downstairs and noticed he was more worked up than usual.  I made a quick pit stop in the kitchen before taking him outside.  Then I saw it.  And it saw me.


To be continued...


  1. I know I shouldn't be laughing right now...but the way this story is being told, I can't help it. Sorry!

  2. That bird looks just as scared as you look angry!
    and I love how annoyed Rod is at you and Mike for leaving him, just when you finally caught on to what he'd be telling you for days...
