today III

A blackbird flew into the kitchen. It trapped itself between a big picture window and the jars on the windowsill. It flapped up a few inches and then collapsed down again. I moved the jars to give it space. The stupid thing still kept trying to get through the glass. It pooped on the windowsill - and then in its fear and flappping it flicked bits of it all over the kitchen. I put on thick rubber gloves and picked up the bird and took it outside. It fought against me - I could feel that its muscles were really strong as it tried to get out of my hands, and bits of feathers scattered around the yard when I let it go.

today II

Two women aged 75+ sat behind the till in the Hospice in the Weald charity shop. They were talking about periods - one of them started at 12 or 12 and a half. And her niece had some show at 14 but then they started properly later. She started her menopause at 47, though when she went to her GP he poo-pooed her and said she was too young.

The man in front of me at Lidl bought 4 cans of lager, 3 tubes of pringles, and a watermelon.
