So Happy

This afternoon I took Bartleby for a walk and to return a movie. There had been a thunderstorm earlier in the day and the air smelled fresh and rainy. At one point while I was walking I heard a pretty loud rustle across the street. I looked, and saw a cardinal with a piece of plastic in her beak, hopping into a bush.

At that moment, I thought my heart would burst with happiness.

Something tells me that cardinal got the plastic caught in her throat and she died.

Just sayin'.

Happy Spring!
