OUCH.....and screaming bloody murder.

Sooooo, this morning I was SO proud of myself! My intern Laura and I headed out to run a couple miles around my favorite lake near us! I was getting into a nice pace and rounded a corner near all these trees when all of a sudden a saw this crazy black thing dart right out of the corner of my eye and then all of a sudden flew RIGHT onto my head pulled my hair and flew away!!! I was screaming so loud Laura who was up ahead thought I fell into the lake or something! I was SO freaked out that a huge bird just land on my head and I could feel the feet on my head and everything! Ahh!! As I was finishing the run everytime I would run past that area I would run with my hands on top of my head.
Finally when I got home I was just figuring that the crazy bird flew into my hair because maybe my hair looked like a birds nest or something! ha!
After telling my dad though...he started laughing because apparently JUST last night in the national news on Drudge Report there was a warning to Chicagoans to watch out for male blackbirds who are protecting their domain! And that they were attacking people who got near the nest! Apparently mostly bikers...but I guess I was running fast enough that it was the speed of a bike;) HA! SO random....
I hope you are all doing amazing!! The internship is going AMAZING and as always I LOVE my new interns!! We have a lot of hilarious pics to post...coming up soon!

This story sounds like a terrible omen; I don't know why you sound so cheery about it.

This is my imitation of you, blogging about the end of the world:

"And then all of a sudden, a fireball hit the earth and I was like, AHHHH!!!!! And my intern thought I was crazy, but then SHE saw the fireball, and we were both like, AHHHH!!!!! So we ran in the other direction, and we saw another fireball and then I tripped on my shoelace and fell right on my face! Hahahahhaha!!!"

:) :) :) :) :) :)

I love you so much.
