Questions about my icon? (Read: The "Dead Bird" Debacle)


#1

Greetings,

Some people have asked, and I just though I’d answer the obvious question, "Why is this crazy person posing with his son and a “dead bird” ? :stuck_out_tongue:

No, the bird is not dead…

Fade to scene where my family is vacationing in Venice Beach, CA...

Outside of a beach-front restaurant, a man and a parrot are sitting in front. The man points to the parrot and says, “Bang! You’re dead!”. The extremely well-trained parrot then keels over and pretends to be dead…

Out of nowhere, my (then 5 year old) son, showing wayyyyyy too little fear, walks over to the man and just grabs the bird from him, and turns around…

Just then, 2 tourists jump up from their tables and start taking pictures, and somehow I mustered up the courage to get close to that thing and pose along with my son (Elijah)…

So that’s why I have the icon of my son holding a dead bird… :stuck_out_tongue:

Cheers,
David
