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.
  1. Fourth grade zoo trip
    In the aviary. Maybe the most embarrassing moment of my young life. This incident earned me the nickname pooper scooper for a few weeks.
  2. Trafalgar's Square
    In 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.
  3. Trafalgar's Square AGAIN
    A 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.
  4. In Hawaii while walking to Goodwill
    I 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.
