We Had A Deal!

I pulled a George.






I'm not going to say that I hit a bird with my car because it was more like the bird hit me. There I am driving and all the sudden a bird hits my windshield!


Seriously. The bird was sitting in the middle of the road, outside the range of my car, and decided to fly right into me as I drove by.


"We had a deal!"



I feel so bad but there wasn't anything I could do. He broke his side of the deal!


Poor little guy. Should I have stopped to see if the bird was knocked out or laying in the road unable to fly? Well I didn't, I just kept driving. Does that make me a bad person?


Wait, don't answer that. I must have been in shock.



I can only conclude that the bird had just lost his job, lost his girlfriend, watched his nest burn to the ground, and found out that he only had 30 days to live.


He was obviously suicidal.






I sure hope PETA isn't reading this. Please forgive me.

Love it! Skylar tells me one of his goals is to be able to hit a bird. He would be so jealous :)

That hardly ever happens! They play chicken all the time but they never get hit! That one had a death wish. You did it a favor. ;)

haha!!! I just had this conversation with Julie in Texas last week... she ran over not one - but TWO birds at TWO different times... she said, she was driving & thought, that's the prettiest pigeon - it was a tan color & then she said she got closer to it & then BAM - she looked & it was flat in her rear view mirror... she kept saying "IT WAS SUPPOSED TO FLY AWAY!!!!!"... I told her, "You're GEORGE!"

Way to go, I'm sure now PETA will be all over your case since you are a deal breaker & here you go blaming it on a bird. Yea right, LOL ;)

One time (not at band camp), I thought I hit a bird with my car. It wasn't on purpose so I just sorta went on my way. Except when "my way" finally took me home (after a long day of errands and such), I realized I had indeed hit the bird. And it had been wedged in the grill on the front of my car all day.

I made Joe remove it because no way was I gonna touch it. Eww, gross.

Pricilla said...

Now you know all it's friends are gonna poop on you.

Megan said...

LOL Poor birdie!!

I drove by a struggling bird that was in the middle of the street the other day. I didn't realize what it was till I passed it and I didn't want to stop after that. I guess we're both mean. :0P

Oh you evil woman!!!!

Okay. . . maybe not.

Let's just say I've had a suicidal scrub jay, red-winged black bird and ground squirrel kill themselves on my vehicles. Thank goodness it was not simultaneous.

Justine said...

What is it with frickin' birds doing that shit? Last month we had a bat fly into our car. I thought they had that bat radar crap so they wouldn't run into things?

Justine :o )

Suzi said...

Don't feel bad, I have had birds drop out of the sky and hit my windshield, ground squirrels run under my tire as I was driving by. They MUST be on a suicide mission. I didn't stop for them either. You are not, I repeat not, a bad person.

Linds Forrest said...

So freaking funny! Bird's fault for sure. except you may burn in hell for not checking on him. I kid. I kid.

Brian Miller said...

aww...poor bird...poor you...yeah, it must have been his time...

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Totally suicidal. He probably had a failed attempt with a different car prior to yours and decided yours was his best bet to make it quick and painless. You were just a pawn in his scheming ways.

Once I was vacuuming in the living room next to the big picture window and a falcon flew SMACK into the window, fell on the ground, twitched a bit, and died. I'm surprised my window didn't break, because it was big. Scared the living daylights out of me.

KK said...

lol, how's your windshield?

Queenie Jeannie said...

When I was dating Thomas, I put in A LOT of travel hours. I killed so many bunnies and squirrels it's not funny. Nothing I could have done about it either.

It's ok hun!

One time.. a bird flew RIGHT into the grill of my car. It was nasty.. and I felt terrible.
Suicidal birds.. sheesh.

My mom took out not 1 but 2 redbirds yesterday. Same thing they came swooping down at her and wound up under the car. Both in the road behind us.. not pretty..

Aleta said...

Isn't that just the worst feeling? Now.. if it had been a squirrel....

Mom Taxi Julie said...

I've hit a ton of birds and an owl and a squirrel and recently a bunny. I always feel so bad :(

Alexis AKA MOM said...

Right now I feel like that bird and the windshield. Sorry PETA but I'm human guess it doesn't matter ... just playing been one of those months.

Synergy Girl said...

Oh man...but just think of it this way...it's WAY better than hearing the "THUD THUD" of running OVER a small unexpecting animal....that is AWEFUL!!!

Maki said...

Oh man, that sucks!! I know you felt awful no matter how you try to make it funny. But you know, there was a guy named Fabio, remember him? A bird hit his face while he was riding on roller coaster... So, your case is maybe a bit better? RIP, birdie!

WhisperingWriter said...

Oops!

It's fine though. There are plenty of birds in the world.

I've always thought PETA needed to chill.
