King of Thieves

Merry merry king of the brush is he

He might be merry but those signs are no joke. After our first final, Tara and I were walking from the library happily munching on delicious cookies our friend Gigi had baked. Out of nowhere this huge bird swoops pass me, its feathers within an inch of my face.  I was so glad it missed me when I turn to see Tara madly swearing and cursing at a large kookaburra who had just stolen her cookie. He’d snatched it from her hand and was just sitting on the ground looking between it and Tara. It was one of those funnily tragic moments. Luckily we could still share my cookie. But lesson learned: beware the birds!
