Bumper Thumper

Driving to church a couple of Sundays ago, a young starling flew in front of me and met its maker in a puff of black feathers.

Later in the day driving home from a Mother’s Day dinner…

Me: I hit a bird in your car this morning.

Laura: Oh no! Did you hurt it?

Me: Only for a second.

    Did you put the bird’s name in the prayer booh?

    I’m afraid not. “Dumb dead bird” might have raised some eyebrows from other prayer book inscribers.
