That Dirty Bird

I was agitated by the man who was handing out pamphlets, as he rudely shoved one right in my hand.  I handed it right back to him and I said, “You have some nerve.”  He said, “I know just how you feel, as I felt the same way when I looked up and saw it fall from the sky.”  I said to myself, not another one of those the sky is falling lunatics and I grabbed the pamphlet from him again and told him to have a nice day.  He said, “Would you like to sign my petition, it will only take a minute and I need 200 more signatures?”  I told him that I am not signing anything till I have read it first and that I needed to hurry, so I could catch my bus.

Luck frowned on me and I missed my bus, so I would have to wait twenty more minutes for the next one.  Just then a bird defecated on me and I was lucky that I was wearing my hat, or otherwise this would have been real nasty.  I used the pamphlet to wipe my hat off and as I was doing that I saw, “There are too many seagulls around here and we need to pass a law requiring them all to wear diapers”, written on the pamphlet.  I located the man and signed his petition.

Written for 5/4/19 Linda G. Hill’s ‘Life in progress’ Stream of Consciousness Saturday where the prompt is “fall from the sky”.
