I love open windows, and I love welcoming fresh air into our house. No artificial airconditioning for me! I'm going all natural.
Bird in da house!
Unfortunately with so many windows and doors open, it's not only the fresh air that gets in. Birds mistake our house for the sky, and fly inside. Once inside they realize their mistake and start to panic. And I mean really panic.
Apparently they all suffer from acute amnesia, because instead of leaving the way they came in, they try to kill themselves by flying into the clósed windows. All the while emptying their little bowels all over the house.
This wouldn't be so bad, except birds scare the hell out of me. So while they're panicking, so am I. Only I'm not crapping all over our living room.
So I hide in a cupboard, and cry for my husband, to get the bird out of our house. There I sit for what seems like an eternity, and shout: 'Is it gone yet? Is it gone yet?' Only when it's safe I dare to come out.
Sometimes I suspect my husband takes his time giving the all clear, so he can watch Star Trek uninterrupted!
Anyway, all this put me off 'open windows'. I'm just too afraid a bird may fly in.
How do you feel about airing your house?
And how do you feel about them scary birds?
