|^All of you when reading about my life :P|
The next morning, I had plans to go to church (as it was a Sunday). I got up, made breakfast, got dressed in a cute sundress, braided my hair, and finished getting ready - the typical morning in my life. After grabbing my keys and purse, I headed out the door.
This particular Sunday was gorgeous - I totally didn't mind that I had to walk a bit further to get to the second parking lot. There are two beautiful trees on each side of this lot's driveway, so I was just enjoying nature as I continued to walk to my car.
About halfway to my vehicle, I felt a rush of air pretty dang close to my head. I turned around and saw a bird land on the ground and then turn to swoop at me again.
|^Basically my new fear|
I started walking a bit faster (because who wants to feel threatened by a bird) and THE BIRD SWOOPED AGAIN AND LANDED ON MY HEAD. Like I felt it CLAW MY SCALP.
My first thought: Yell at it (wtf are you Cinderella?! The bird can't understand you!)
What I actually did: Scream and run the rest of my way to my car - lol.
Overall, the bird didn't do much damage (other than forcing me to redo part of the braid I had done in my hair), but I REFUSE to park in that lot anymore. Honestly, I was more offended than anything that a bird would choose to attack me (cuz I think I look pretty harmless haha) I'm assuming there is a nest in one of those trees, but I ain't risking it... Morale of the story: blackbirds can be very aggresive.
