ALL THE TIMES I'VE BEEN POOPED ON BY A BIRD
People will tell you it's a sign of good luck. I assure you it is not.
- •Fourth grade zoo tripIn the aviary. Maybe the most embarrassing moment of my young life. This incident earned me the nickname pooper scooper for a few weeks.
- •Trafalgar's SquareIn 2004 I was in London for a long weekend and was sitting enjoying the crowd and the lions when a jerk pigeon landed one right on my head.
- •Trafalgar's Square AGAINA few years later I was back in London's most famous square with a friend and was telling her how the last time I visited I got pooped on by a bird. In the middle of the story I got pooped on AGAIN. Probably by the same bird because such is my life. I love telling this story so much it makes up for the suckiness.
- •In Hawaii while walking to GoodwillI love thrift shopping when I travel so stopping by a Goodwill was high on my list of things to do on Oahu. On the walk to Goodwill we passed under some power lines and plop! Hit again. I walked in, snatched a gorgeous green dress off a mannequin and wore that sucker right out of the store.
