Until now, I never...
Got Attacked by a Crow

Today I went over to my friend’s house to help her clean up after her big 50th birthday party last night, and a lot of what I needed to do was bring borrowed stuff back over to the neighbor’s house across the street.  This neighbor has two small children that were napping, so I tried to be as quiet as possible, tip-toeing in and out of her house.  But when I was quietly leaving the house for the last time, something bashed into my head and I instinctively shouted, “What the hell??!!!!!!!” quickly seeing that it was a crow that had swooshed down and grabbed my hair with its claws.  So I ran as quickly back across the street to the safety of my friend’s house.  Of course I had made such a ruckas that the neighbor came out and said, “Did they get you?” knowing immediately what had happened.  Apparently there is a nest right next to their house with baby chicks in it, and that is causing the crows to be overly aggressive.  So aggressive that the neighbors have been walking in and out of their house with badminton rackets that they swat around in the air to keep the crows from attacking.  How crazy is that?  Especially since they have an 8 month old baby they are also lugging around.  Good grief…
