This post is dedicated to my wonderful sister-in-law, Becca. She has a deep and intense love, I mean hatred of birds. As a young girl, she was chased by a huge pterodactyl, I mean a big black bird, as she was riding her bike in Walsh. Ever since then, she despises all birds.
Anyway, one day when Aaron and I were staying out at my parents' farm waiting to move into our rental house, I looked outside and noticed a million, maybe even a trillion, birds. I fought the urge to feel like we needed to bar the windows and doors like we were in the Alfred Hitchcock movie, The Birds. Thankfully, Aaron and Mom convinced me that we were safe.
