It finally dawned on me why the birds dart away more often than not when I start to wash dishes at the sink.
No dishpan talons for me!
I am so sorry little friends! It never occurred to me that it must be confusing that the same nice lady who provides you with a bounty of seed and fresh water also employs a beast of a bird with claws of death that hover about the window from time to time, just waiting to wash a dish and make a kill.
These gloves are bad for business. Predator-free dining is a Seed n’ Feed guarantee.
I have since switched to a nice lavender-hued set of gloves. At worst it may seem that we now have a Blue-Footed Booby tending to dishes, but fear not! They primarily eat fish and don’t live anywhere near here.
Yes, we’re open!
