Everyday I get up with Tom and drive him to work. It’s no big deal and I enjoy the extra time we have together. This past week every time I picked him up from work, I feel I’ve stumbled upon a Hitchcock movie – The Birds.
There were a bazillion of them for a two block stretch on both sides of the road. They line up on the phone wires and on the tops of stores. The picture above doesn’t do it justice, but if you click on the picture you'll be able to see them better. It makes me want to drive with my windows up and pray, especially when they take off as a gang and fly from one structure to another.
I was in the store and came across this Barbie doll that commemorates Tippi Hedren in the movie The Birds. Okay, Mattel, what are you thinking? Don’t get me wrong, I love Barbie. I collect the very fancy ones (snicker if you must). There is something all kinds of wrong with this doll that has a black bird sticking on her head that’s not part of a fashion statement. Why would I want a doll like that? Why would I buy that for my child? Seriously. What’s next Frankenstein’s bride or maybe Freddy Kruger?
Have a wonderful weekend and stay free from any Hitchcock movies coming to life in your neighborhood.
