If a picture is worth a thousand words, this picture is worth the word EFF! written one thousand times.

That bird is totally all up in my face. I wonder if it had a problem with my shirt maybe?
The point is, ‘Burghers, as a general rule, I hate birds. So when the National Aviary, located right here in Pittsburgh, e-mailed me about touring its facility, my immediate gut reaction was, “Voluntarily enter an enclosed space with a whole bunch of birds? LOL. Delete.”
But I’m always looking for things to write about and figured hanging out with birds was sure to be entertaining in a “Mom, I think that screaming lady peed her pants” kind of way.
Good news! I didn’t pee my pants. Much.
