I had a dentist appointment during lunch today. My dentist's office is conveniently located just up the street from where I work. I had a nice appointment and came out with glossy teeth and a happiness of not having any cavities or major problems. Despite the weather report, the sun was shining and it was a very nice day. My appointment went so well that I had about ten minutes before I was due back in the office! We have a small park across the street, so I thought I would sit there and read a book for a few minutes, enjoying the sun and the smooth feeling of my tongue over my teeth...before I go inside and fill them with food and stain them with my beloved coffee.
Just as I was entering the park, I felt a little plop on my left side. It took me by surprise when I looked down to find a bright spot on my purple jacket where a bird, in a fly-over operation, had relieved himself on me! So much for my little happy moment! Maybe it was the glare of the sun on my teeth that caught his attention... Maybe the purple jacket, making its first spring appearance, was a target... Or maybe, like some people say, it is good luck and will cancel out that broken mirror I carry around as a part of my makeup bag... Who knows?
All I know is that I've got to get to the cleaners.
