I stayed home from school today not because I was feeling sick (in fact I feel fine), but because I’m contagious and don’t want to give strep throat to anyone else. I think this is the best kind of “being sick” – feeling wonderful and missing school anyway!
I must admit I’ve been quite lazy today. I’ve mainly been sitting on the couch in our family room, 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!
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. Sometimes I feel that if everyone in the world could learn to do that, then a lot of problems might be solved. Many arguments could easily be avoided, and people might not be in a hurry to pass judgments.
Next time you see a robin, try to imagine what it’s thinking!

Awwwwww thats so cute!!!! And a very good point. 🙂
Ur very welcome
hehe, my bird likes taking baths too, except when it’s done, it doesn’t go back…
Well, that makes sense. I don’t know what’s up with our birds.
Talking about different perspectives- how do you think a trumpet feels, constantly having air blown through it? Never a monments rest from the feeling of “bloatedness”!! That would be an interesting concept- the audience clapping and praising the musician, while the trumpet goes “yea yea yea… you don’t know how I feel”….
Interesting. I hadn’t thought about that perspective before.
