To wonder what's so special about pigeons?

walking through town with just ds2. Had one of those bittersweet moments when you realise just how lovely it is to hold your child's hand, and just how quickly he is growing up. So prompted by this I said unguardedly:

"J, I do love you, very much!"

"not as much",came the reply "as I love pigeons."

<sigh>

grin Golden eagles would have been easier to take, I think.

One boy and his pigeon. How can you compete?

DD2 once advised me that orange juice made her happier than anything in the world, even cuddles.

I say we go out and shoot some pigeons with frozen oj pellets.

<sings Poisoning Pigeons in the Park quietly to self> "We'll murder them all amidst laughter and merriment..."

Pigeons are capable of abstract thought.

And they are delicious with chips and peas.

<<involuntary snort of hilarity>>

chips & peas.

<<snorts again, so attractive>>

Mortimer hated Arabel. Your DS could have had her, but she flew away last week.

Ormirian Sun 25-Sep-11 18:50:17

OK shitmoo. Thankyou.

<assumes mildly benevolent and very smiley expression of the nervous and confused confronting someone with possible MH issues>

Ormirian Sun 25-Sep-11 18:51:57

I don't want to shoot them with anything. DS would then feel sorry for them and hate me. I think the best way is to be nice to them and hope that one day one of them shits on him so he can have his eyes opened to their feral and unpleasant nature. I would never shit on him <smug>

snigger Sun 25-Sep-11 18:53:34

Are you sure that maternal one-upmanship in the form of "I would never shit on you, son" is what you want as your epitaph? grin

snigger Sun 25-Sep-11 18:55:32

That phrase, I can tell, is going to bubble karmically to the forefront of my mind in the most inappropriate situations.

"Snigger, your performance is falling behind what we would consider employable."

"Ah, but I'd never shit on you, sir."

<<giggles maniacally>>

Look! I have long ago accepted that I humans come about 120th on the ladder of species as far as my youngest son is concerned. I would be happy simply to be accepted as superior to other humans. And possibly pigeons.

Ormirian Sun 25-Sep-11 18:57:13

Enjoy snigger, enjoy grin

ShitmooStratton Sun 25-Sep-11 19:18:05

Mortimer = pet raven
Arabel = sodding racing pigeon that got squashed by a car and was rescued by DD2.

Sworn enemies. Thank fuck Arabel flew away last week and things are back to normal.

Ormirian Sun 25-Sep-11 19:22:53

Pet RAVEN! That is so wonderful! I want a pet raven! I want one NOW!

He'd love me better than pigeons then.....

babynamesgrrrrrrrrrrrrr Sun 25-Sep-11 19:23:28

ha ha ha sorry I did actually LOl and snort

ShitmooStratton Sun 25-Sep-11 19:28:44

<hides Mortimer>

You can't have ours, he's speshul. There's pics of him on my profile though. grin

Ormirian Sun 25-Sep-11 19:47:32

The idea of a pet raven feeds into all the slightly perverted Morris-ish faux-Medieval obsessions that I had as a teenager. Maybe that bit of me has survived work, mortgage and motherhood. A bit worrying really.

Ormirian Sun 25-Sep-11 19:47:58

I can't see your profile.

Honeydragon Sun 25-Sep-11 19:51:24

My mnet name was for Ds .... He wishes I were a dragon. I am to squishy to be a dragon "but in a good way" <weeps€

This thread is very funny grin

ShitmooStratton Sun 25-Sep-11 20:13:57

It should show now...

ShitmooStratton Sun 25-Sep-11 20:15:16

I don't understand why it's not showing sad

Ormirian Mon 26-Sep-11 10:07:27

Boo! I want to see t'Raven.

Is you profile set to be viewed by everyone?

ShitmooStratton Mon 26-Sep-11 10:09:37

Yes you should be able to see it now smile
