The other day as Shae and I were running some errands, my eyes were distracted and I blurted out something I should not have said.
We were pulling out of the gas station and I see this HUGE, GIGANTIC bird sitting on top of the telephone poll. It caught my attention because it was all fluffed up and wiggling around. The next thing I see is another HUGE, GIGANTIC bird flying above the other one and landing on top of the other one.
I blurted out "Look at those HUGE, GIGANTIC birds mating on top of that pole!!!!!"
Holy cow, I had never seen something like THAT before and as I am staring in amazement, I then hear the little voice in the back seat.
"Mommy, what is mating?"
What did I say and now I have to explain!!
"Ummm..................." is all I could spew out of my mouth.
Innocently again the voice from the back seat: "What is mating?"
"It is when 2 birds are standing next to each other" was all that I could word vomit out.
So there you have it. My intelligence failed me in the moment of desperation. I was a complet blank. I knew one day this would happen however, I completely forgot that animals will do it anywhere, anytime, any place. Dang it! Didn't see that one coming at all.
Ever happen to you before? Do share!
