I’ve had a lot of strange realizations since becoming pregnant. I’ve smelled things I’ve never smelled before, I’ve tasted ingredients in things that I didn’t know were there, and I hate half the foods and drinks that I usually love.
But this one…I’m totally confused.
I was leaving the house the other day, and on the way out, I looked in the large mirror in the basement, just like I do every day.
And I noticed this on the mirror:
Bird POOP?!?! How does Bird Poop get on a vertical mirror? What kind of aim must that bird have??
And more importantly,since I’m nearly positive that no bird has been in my house, and completely positive that this mirror hasn’t been taking any day trips OUT of the house, how did this happen??
Has it always been there? If not, how long HAS it been there? And how have I not noticed until now?
As I pondered these disturbing mysteries, I saw on the shelf right next to the mirror:
Okay. So unless the mirror and the shelves have been taking outdoor trips TOGETHER, a bird, at some point, found a way to enter my house, poo on my furniture, and leave again without me ever knowing it?!?!
Or have my housekeeping skills so diminished that there are bugs in my house big enough to produce bird poo?
To ensure this wasn’t all some sort of pregnancy neuroses, I made Chris go down and look at it and confirm that it did indeed exist, that he’d never seen it before, and that he had no knowledge of birds in our house.
But whatever did it, let me just clarify that my welcome mat does NOT mean come in my house, poo on my furniture, and then leave before I know you’re there, only to completely confuse me.
Please assure me….mysteriously appearing bird poo inside one’s house is a totally normal phenomenon….right?
