Feeling somewhat relaxed, we stood, took a deep breath and began to enjoy the surroundings.
Kristine: Hey look up there, the pigeons are flying together in a cool pattern.
Me: Wow, that does look really cool how they all fly together and oh not they're coming this way!
As pigeons flew overhead, we covered our heads and screamed as we ran to a covering of trees where we stopped dead in our tracks because at least twenty geese began screaming right back at us.
With no where left to run except back to the car, we put on our big girl panties and yelled until the geese left us alone so we could snap a few family shots without the look of terror on our faces.
By the end of the day my nephew walked over to me, wrapped his arms around my leg and buried his face into my hip saying, "Birds, birds, birds," and shaking his head no. I hope one day I have kids of my own so my sister can help me scar them for life like I helped her.
When I got home I texted Motherly.
Me: Hey, so Kristine and I took Trey to the park today to feed ducks.
Motherly: Yeah I saw your pictures on Facebook. Funny, I thought you girls were terrified of birds.
Me: Oh we are.
Motherly: LOL How'd that work out for you?
Me: Not well.
So, what are you afraid of?
