Hummingbird flying up to feeder

There were dogfights in the air outside my window this morning.

Apparently, hanging out a hummingbird feeder is the catalyst for war. Hummingbird war.

Your Turn

Have you ever done something nice that caused a stir? Chime in below!

Yes! Oh, my. I went with a group to have mass with the pope in the Vatican for New Years. A friend couldn’t come, so when communion was passed I took an extra wafer to bring back to him. Riot!! Evidently Catholics believe that wafer *literally* becomes the flesh of Christ when you eat it, and it has to be carried in a special pure gold container. I was surrounded by a mob of angry Italians shouting things I didn’t understand but definitely got the gist of. Fortunately I’d befriended some old Italian birds next to me that spoke pigeon English; they explained my innocent stupidity to the masses, which agreed (presumably) to spare my life only if I ate that wafer there on the spot.

    WOW. Sounds like a close call. “Mob of angry Italians” at mass with the pope. LOL!

    Wow. I had not yet read your comment before mentioning riot gear. Lol

Just the effort to inform people can make you double check the condition of your riot gear. I’ve certainly experienced unintentional consequences. A specific example would be the time my god daughter had a damaging hairstyle (like literally causing physical harm with more threatened). She begged me for help and instinctively I freed her. The problem was I didn’t ask her mother first. Mom had sacrificed greatly to provide the style at my God daughter’s insistence. I had the rare opportunity to experience just how unhappy her mom was when she cussed me the rest of the way out after dropping the phone she believed she disconnected… :/
