This morning on my 13 mile run blackbird tried to take off with my scalp.
This is not the first time such a thing has happened. Back in June 2009 something almost identical happened.
I have a sense that today was more sinister. The bird had its claws tangled up in my hair and I could feel them scrapping against my skull. Sure, maybe I got too close to its nest or maybe I startled it but I think those are just avoiding the real reason.
I think the danged thing was trying to lift me up for the Rapture.
