Four and Twenty [Gazillion] Blackbirds.

One of my neighbors, a Haitian lady who apparently is new to the Northeast, saw me walking and asked, “What is with all these blackbirds? Are we in their migratory path?”

I answered that I assumed that to be the case.

However, I secretly thought it might be fun to say, “Oh no, this has absolutely nothing to do with migration. All these blackbirds are a sign of some extremely bad juju,” which I suspect would have seriously screwed up the woman’s day.

Sometimes I am just a regular gott-damned prince.
