when listening to the bird whistle

by Eli Skipp

i always hated that canary winged conure of my mothers and when it got eaten by a hawk
that flew in through our screen which had been busted by a category three hurricane that
came out of the atlantic sometime in october (it was right around halloween
actually) and left us without power for three and a half weeks, i was glad.

this reminded me of the movie version of the spiderwick chronicles actually. only because i haven't read any of the books. but yeah. i liked it

that was a great, long interjection before the 'i was glad.' and i loved it.
