Once In A Lifetime. I Hope.

There are many things in life that you don't expect to ever have to deal with. The odds are against them and all.

Like lightning. What are the chances you'll get struck by lightning in your lifetime? Pretty low, right? Well, actually it's something like 1 in 280,000, according to the National Lightning Safety Institute, at least in the US.

And there was that time when I was only like 30 feet away from the impact point of a lightning strike on the walk outside my apartment. But I was inside. The two girls walking by at the time were not hit, but pretty shaken.

So, I guess these things do happen, but we're mostly better off not thinking about them.

And that brings me to this morning. A gorgeous, sunny, warm (hot) morning. And I took Maxi out for a walk. Not three doors down from our house, I felt something wet hit my head and arm.

"How is it raining with this gorgeous clear sky?" I thought to myself. As I glanced over at my arm. And I saw it. The unmistakable drippings of wet bird poo.



I grabbed an empty dog poo bag and tried my best to scrape it off, but then I remembered my hair.

Surprisingly, I didn't throw up. It was however, the shortest walk that dog ever experienced. Followed real quick by the longest and hottest shower I ever experienced.

43 years I managed to avoid the disgusting bird poop on the head thing. 43 years. Dare I hope this means I won't have to face it again?
Keep an eye on those trees!
