I would be beyond delighted it if a bird just showed up in my kitchen. Ahh!

Paige,

I'm not sure I'd be delighted. A violation of private space by such an rare visitor would set me on edge. It'd feel like splinter in the room's invisible skin. The kind you can hear slowly buzzing.

That paniced awareness has its advantages though. In that state, the bird's presence can seem purposeful; a messenger that has carried in questions, an anomaly hiding truth.

But you used to have birds, I'm sure they're farther from alien in your kitchen.

A.
