The Little Story

We’d been aware of the family of crows above us. Carrying on as crows do. I set aside my typical birdwatching infatuation while distracted by human company, a childhood friend reconnecting after decades apart. Ignoring the ruckus above, we focused on the panoramic view of the Mississippi. Chatting in the shade of trees overhanging the bluff, we blissfully caught up with our lives. My brain didn’t really register what was happening at first. Sudden warmth spreading on my back, breaking the spell of the conversation. As realization set in, my disgust increased, soon replaced with marvel at aim so perfect to land between my collar and neck and slide right down. No ordinary guano this, I’m talking about at least a cup of slimy, stinky funk. They say being pooped on by a bird is good luck. Let’s say I was very lucky.
