Streptococci and Robins

I didn’t go to school today not because I was feeling sick (because I feel fine), but because I’m contagious and don’t want to give strep throat to anyone else. I think that’s the best kind of sickness- to feel wonderful and miss school anyway. 🙂

I’ve been a lazy butt all day, and every single time I look out the window the same robin is taking a bath in our birdbath. It just sits there, splashing water all over its body. It looks so funny- and so cute! I’m looking at it right now, and it’s making such a mess, splashing water everywhere. Once it’s done, it flies up to a tree and shakes itself dry. It looks like a puffball. And then, after it’s dry, it flies back down and starts bathing again. What the heck.

I wonder what it would be like to be a robin. It would be interesting, wouldn’t it? It could make a good story- writing from a robin’s point of view. I’m inclined to try it. It’s always interesting to look at something from a different perspective. If people could learn to do that, then a lot of the problems in this world wouldn’t exist. A lot of arguments could easily be avoided, and people wouldn’t be in such a hurry to pass judgments.

Next time you see a robin, try to imagine what it’s thinking.
