Yeah Write Entry # 160

Warmth

Sun

Sand

The dull din of waves, kids playful screams and a multitude of conversations.

Then it happened.

I dropped the french fry.

They came out of no where and everywhere.

Cawing and screaming for more.  

Relentless

Fearless


Peace stealing birds.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is an entry into this week's Gargleblaster brought to us by Yeah Write 
The Rules:
Why do birds suddenly appear?
Give us your answer in 42 words. We know you all know the next line in the song. Let’s see if you can make us think of something different. Take it out of context of the original song and help me clear my head!
You don’t need to include the question in your 42-word response, and you should make sure your answer stands alone. What do we mean? Write down the question. Write down your response. Now cover the question with your hand and read your answer out loud. Does it still make sense when you don’t know the question? That’s what we’re looking for. Be creative, and remember: no family allowed!

This is exactly what happens at the beach.

When I first read the question my first thought was the beach and the boardwalk,...how the seagulls are ravenous and relentless in their quest for french fries or abandoned ice cream cones.

so this was spot on...for how they act and how they upset a perfectly good "treat" ;)

Birds come flying, I go a running. You can't drop food outside without them coming in for the attack.

This reminds me of vacations, which is a beautiful thing, and how they sit in wait, those birds!!! This was wonderfully set.

:D - good one and so true!

Like this--oh, they're so ruthless. I like how you told this.

geeta nair said...

Oh! I can surely relate to this. Have seen this happen so many time. Lovely.

Shailaja V said...

Ha ha ha.. yep. Seen that happen. More often than I would care to admit. Them and ants. And oh, monkeys!

Thank You! I appreciate your feedback. I was also wondering, since I am an East Coast-er if the seagulls on the West Coast are more laid back, or if they are just as intrusive?

Momma O said...

They are relentless! Thanks for commenting.

Momma O said...

Thank you for your comment. I long for a beach day soon!

Momma O said...

Thank You!

Momma O said...

Ruthless, yes! Thank you for commenting.

Momma O said...

Thank you for your comment.

Momma O said...

Thank you for your comment! I have yet to be in a climate that inhabits monkeys, but hope to some day! I can imagine that they are pretty determined too!

whimsygizmo said...

Oh, man. Yep. That's all it takes. One french fry.
Well done.

I once watched a seagull swallow a hot dog whole. I've been a little nervous around them ever since... This was a fun post - thanks for linking it up!

Ann Bennett said...

Been there, done that, lol.

Kristi Campbell said...

They're kinda creepy, right?
