Banish all flying things!

Sunday - I think they are out to get me. I don't like bugs or anything that flies, except birds. But i have changed my mind about that now. I now no longer like ANYTHING which flies. A few days ago, i opened the main door and saw this psycho bird fly straight at me. I ducked and it hit the door. I screamed and ran into the house. 2 minutes later, i crept out and saw the bird perched at the neighbour's door...... looking at me. I ran to press the 'down' button of the lift, hid in a corner till the lift doors open and ran in.

And i thought nothing more of it.

Sunday night i was happily watching My Super Ex Girlfriend when something swooped in from the balcony and over my head. I stood up, only to see the damn bird make a U turn and head straight for my head! I ducked, screamed and ran into my room and locked the door. (Yeah i know it doesn't matter if i lock the door or not)

Sat down on my bed to catch my breath. Wanted to call for help ....... but my mobile was on the chair ......... next to the balcony! I opened the door ajar, took a few surreptitious steps and made a mad dash for the mobile. In my peripheral vision, i could see the mad bird flapping its wings and the sound of the WHOOP WHOOP of wings seems like it was right behind me.

Grabbed the phone and ran back into my room. And locked the door.

Made a SOS call to Paul the Tigger who laughed and asked me if it was a crow. That freaked me out even more. Crows are bad omens right? And to get attacked twice in 3 days? Thats even worst!

These things only happen to me.

And you know whats worst? These attacks of the flying variety has happened before. It just seems to get worst with bigger creatures and in more frequent intervals as the years go by.

Whats bigger then a bird and flies? Wait. I don't want to know.

Don't know and don't want to know. All i know is that I'm really high up and yet these things always choose my condo. And they usually visit twice.

Hard to believe Amanda is afraid of something. Thought you are the most daring and crazy girl I knew. HAHA....
If I...I think I'll get something like racket to hit the bird.

Even superheros have their weaknesses ..... I also can't kill another creature so all i can do is run and hide. But this was no ordinary bird. I'm still convinced its an Omen n its out to get me and if i kill it, it's death will bring 10,000 birds to avenge its death.

sad to inform you the only thing i can think of that flies and is larger than your usual malaysian bird would be a bat..yes, the winged rodent..on the plus side, you get to wear your wet suit, booties and mask around for protection..don't forget the plastic bag socks for easy application

Yes i was thinking of a bat but i didn't wanna say it out loud. Now i think you've jinxed it. I can use the snorkel as a bat to batter the bat. Will need to get wet before i suit up tho. That will take a while. And a lot of huffinng, puffing and grunting.
