Another AidanismPosted: December 4, 2008
Temperatures are dropping here in New England. So, among other things, it means that birds are flying south.
And, as they do, they are often stopping on local telephone and other utility wires for a break on their way to warmer climates.
One morning, on our way to day care, we saw, probably 100 or more birds on some wires outside a nearby supermarket.
“Daddy,” said Aidan, “it’s a bird party.”
“You’re right, bud, I think it is,” I replied.
“But, Daddy, I don’t see the cake anywhere.”
I didn’t know what to say, so I came out with, “Me either, bud.”
