Pooped on by a bird

Today a bird pooped on me, right in my hair.

Is it lucky or unlucky?

Do I buy a lottery ticket? Grin

Thatโ€™s lucky supposedly. Buy a lottery ticket.

@TinySongstress
I'm thinking more along the lines of pigeon or crow

Do ostriches even fly?

No @Iwantacookie, but they're really quite tall.

At least it wasn't on and in your mouth like what happened to me thanks to a seagull.

It's lucky. Lucky cows don't fly!

This happend to my dd aged 8. The teacher gave up his lunch to help a TA wash her hair with hand soap ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
I told her its okay. Thats lucky.
She went out to play in the garden and massively cut her leg open in the garden.
I hope its lucky for you but my experience says it may just be a rubbish day all round ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

That happened to me and the DC insisted that I should buy a lottery ticket. I didn't win.

When I was about 11 I got pooped on twice in one day. Both times by seagulls, presumably not the same one. Everyone told me it was lucky but nothing great happened other than I had to get changed twice Hmm

My mum also got pooped on by a Canada goose. Nothing good happened that day either. She just spent a long time trying to wipe it out of her with a tissue, meanwhile I was mortified that she insisted on doing that and continuing with going shopping rather than going home to wash it out properlyConfused

My late Ddog, Morse, was half greyhound and he had the greyhound's typical long thin snout. A pigeon shat directly on his muzzle when we walked under a lamppost!

I wiped it off with a hanky, then we continued our walk to the park - where he found a lovely (and only slightly chewed) ball in the long grass! So going by that, I'd say lucky. And get yourself to a park if you're in the market for a ball!

Oh my god

I was on my way back from a conference and a pigeon shat on my work jacket so I phoned dad and he said delightedly "but that's good luck!"

Certainly didn't feel like it at the time and I wasn't best pleased at the lack of sympathy.

@Frownette I was walking back to the office at lunchtime and it flew overhead and splatted on me just as I was near the main doors, I spat and wiped off what I could with a tissue but went straight into the loos to wash my top and mouth.

I was actually quite ill that night with a fever and for a few days after. Was probably to do with the seagull.
