AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAloha humans! In case you can’t tell, I’m a bit freaked out.
Let’s back up.
I’m at my Mom’s house, which means the characters are Mom, Mimi, Blue, and me. I have a morning routine where I get up at 5, get ready, then sleep until 6:15, when I wake up anyone who needs waking up, today, Blue and Mom, then go downstairs and chill until I have to go to class.
This morning, I got up, got ready, and I walked through the kitchen and to the bathroom. I brushed my hair and teeth, then turned to go back to bed when I hear a really loud rustling sound. I look up and there is a shadow freaking out against the ceiling and run upstairs.
So, still freaking out, I wake up Mom and Mimi. Mom wants nothing to do with it (we actually had a few moments of considering if it was a bird or bat or just a really huge moth. We narrowed it down to the first two, leading to Schrodinger’s bird-bat), Mimi is ready to take care of business. I go with Mimi to help, but the moment we get to the bottom of the stairs we see a fricking mockingbird sitting there on the entryway to the kitchen. I moved back up the stairs to freak out a bit.
But then, oh then, this stupid bird flies up the stairs too! It looked like the thing was flying right at me. I noped out and ran into Mom’s room and shut the door. In my panic, I forgot all about Blue, on his bed, right outside, with the bird! Mom will never let me live that down. We got Blue into the room and waited.
Unlike the rest of us, Mimi was not irrationally scared of the bird. She was just annoyed.
Through the door we hear a crinkling of plastic and the flapping of wings, then quiet, then the front door opening!
Mom: “Did she just catch it in a plastic bag?”
Me: “Surely it’d be louder if she did. Right?”
Front door opens and closes again and Mimi comes upstairs, and tells us it’s gone.
Mom: “How’d you do it?”
Mimi: “I caught it in a plastic bag”
Me (starstruck): “That is so bad***!”
So, that’s how my Mimi, the toughest person in our house, caught a bird while Mom and I panicked in Mom’s room.
Seriously though, I was freaking the heck out. Laughter and tears and an inability to sit still. It was crazy.
Anyway, that’s the story. Thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!
