E is for Early (Bird)


I’m still parentheticalizing, it’s kind of fun. Oh, who am I kidding, it’s really fun. Yes, I should probably get some hobbies.

Anyway, we’re already up to E, and you know what they say about early birds and worms. Although, I have to say, as a non-bird entity, the worm doesn’t sound like much of a prize. I think “The early bird gets the reasonably-priced mid-sized car with a back-up camera” has a much better ring to it, but these days you rarely see birds on the road.

They seem to prefer public transportation. Not sure how many worms they’re getting when they have to transfer twice to get where they’re going, but birds, in general seem plucky. And I have digressed yet again.

Anyway, the benefit for early-birddom for me is the chance to write before the drills take their first bite of concrete, before I can here those eerie voices floating outside.

Before I have to double the headphones and the earplugs. Before the whole place starts to shake, I have my nice window of quiet.

There was at least one drill already, so the window is closing, alas. Oh well, like any good bird, I shall adapt. And maybe fly off somewhere. Wait. Strike that. My wings are at the cleaners.

        well, this one he had 😀 as Eng is not my first language, not always I can just catch the meaning intuitively 😉 I’ll have to visit your blog more often to amp my vocabulary 😀

      • Please do! But also please be careful, because not all of my words are real which isn’t the best thing in a new language. Though clearly English isn’t that new, you’re very fluent!

        Also, parethenticalizing was a word?!? That always surprises me when I think I make one up and it turns out to be real! 🙂

        the link would be too long here, let me know – I can copy the sentence it was in, or something like that 🙂
        As to the warning – do not worry 🙂 English is not quite a new language for me 🙂 just not the first one I’ve learned 😀

      • Oh, don’t worry, I thought it was funny that it’s real! And yes, it’s pretty obvious you’re not new to English, especially from your very lovely blog 🙂
