The birds are back. And I am sure they are watching me.
I never really saw many movies when I was a kid. We barely ever went to the theatre and there was no such thing as a VCR at the time. Popeye, Star Wars, Smokey and the Bandit and Airplane - those are the movies that have remained in my childhood vault. I certainly never saw a horror movie as a child and have barely seen a scarey movie as a grown-up.
So I don't know why these birds freak me out so much. They are everywhere. In every shopping center tree. On all of the power lines down the freeway. I start to get the feeling like I need to get out of the car and run as fast as possible into the store. Oh yeah, except for the fact that I've got to get 5 kids out of the car and one of them needs to be released from his carseat.
The kids and I sat in the car watching the birds for quite a long time the other day. It is like they are playing games, hopping from one tree to another and then over to hang out on the line. I know they are communicating. I think they are actually laughing and playing tricks on me cause they can tell that I am a little freaked out.
P.S. About Airplane, I was 10ish and my brother was 12ish. He BEGGED to go and see it. BEGGED!!!! My parents finally gave in. We went to the theatre as a family. My mom and dad had no idea that there would be nudity. I can remember seeing the naked chest bouncing across the screen and the look on my mom's face. I can remember it like it was yesterday. But I don't remember if we got to stay for the whole movie. Isn't that weird.
