Today my sister and I drove out to Humboldt where our parents live to do some stuff. On the way, as we were driving down the highway, we saw a little bird just standing on the shoulder. As we came closer to the bird I started wondering when the bird was going to fly away, because, being someone who knows a lot about birds, I am pretty sure that birds usually fly away when cars get within 5 feet of them. BIRD FACT.

So anyway the car got closer and closer to the bird until we were about 15 feet away. Suddenly the bird, which had previously been having a leisurely stand on the shoulder, leaned forward with a purpose and booked it into the bushes at the side of the road. Possibly one of the funniest things I have ever seen.

I didn't know if my sister had also observed this but we both burst out laughing and didn't stop for a very long time. This dumb little bird, suddenly leaning forward and sprinting into the bushes. A MS Paint instant replay:

Did I mention I am really good at drawing? I am really good at drawing.

So ANYWAY maybe you had to be there but today a bird made me laugh a lot.
