|This is all getting a bit ridiculous...

So it happened AGAIN today while I was just about to leave for work. A lot of rattling around in my ceiling and chirping. So I decided I didn't want to leave while what I assumed to be a sparrow was stuck up in the extraction pipe, but on the other hand I didn't want to be late. So, a very evil idea took hold of me and I decided I was going to help that bird get motivated to shift itself, goddamnit. I went over to my dryer and set the dial on the last half-minute of the de-wrinkle cycle, producing several short blasts of hot air through the extraction vent. I heard a squawk from my ceiling and then a lot more rattling and all was finally silence. When I walked outside to get into my car, I looked up at my balcony and lo and behold, there was a fatass blackbird staring down at me looking like it had been fired out of a cannon, with this really ticked-off expression on its face. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time.
And so the Battle of the Birds continues. *raises fist*
