Just don't look in to their eyes...


We went to a wildlife park today, as it was Father's day---Daddy's choice. It was a quick change of mind on his part...after we got on the highway he goes,

"Hey, you want to go to the wildlife park instead of the fish hatchery?"
I am like "WOw, you crazy dude (now, THIS is the man I married) let's go!"

The funniest/scariest part was when these Rhea birds (I think that they are prehistoric or something...I will Wiki-it) surrounded our car.
Instead of money they only wanted our eternal souls...


One look in to it's eyes and I was mesmerized. I thought that they were going to spirit me right out of the driver's seat, then and there. I couldn't move, I was very frightened....
Then, the "sweet" Daddy shouted from the back seat,
"Just roll up the WINDOW!"
Now, look at those soul-stealing eyes...I could only scream back,
"I DON'T KNOW HOW!!"
Luckily, the window somehow got halfway rolled up and the spell was broken. I started to breathe again and that bird went straight back to Hades where it rightfully belonged.
But then it's lady friends came to check us out...
I can't talk about it anymore.

You are so funny. Weird ducks. Birds, I mean. I'd be scared too.

J- you actually made me laugh out loud and confirmed my co-workers' assumption that I am, in fact, crazy. I was at a wildlife park in canada when I was a kid and a giraffe stuck its head in the car and stole my sammich right outta my hand. I'm probably the only person in the world that's scared of giraffes.
