A Bird Pooped On My Head!


Seriously — a bird pooped on my head!  I remember the moment like it was yesterday (because it was).  From overhead I heard, “Ca-Caw!”  Then, SPLAT!  There it was.  Three bombs — two direct hits.

I was told today that a bird pooping on your head is good luck.  I am not so sure.  I thought it was GROSS.  My family thought it was funny.  For the rest of the day, my daughter called me “poop girl.”  Nice.  This wasn’t the first time I have been the beneficiary of bird poop.  Once, when I was about 7, a pigeon hit me.  It splattered all over my favorite gray hoodie.  It upset me so badly that I never wore that hoodie again and I haven’t been overly fond of pigeons either.

Another friend of mine told me I should play the lottery, this was after she laughed hysterically.  She figures it is a one in a million chance that I would get nailed by a bird and one in a million chance to win the lottery, so  she thinks my odds are pretty good.  I will consider her suggestion.

I know others who have had it worse.  A friend of mine’s mother (you know who you are) had an extremely unfortunate experience of a seagull splatting poo in her mouth while at the beach.  She was pointing and yelling about the birds and then… yep you got it… an unwanted bird gift.  I bet you’ll think twice the next time you are at the beach feeding the birds.

None-the-less, I am leaving you with a piece of advice, a moose tip if you will, while exploring the outdoors — WEAR A HAT! And, be sure to listen for the foretelling, “Ca-Caw!”

Oh, and if you do happen to be in the line of a direct hit… Wash. Rinse. Repeat. 🙂

  1. Hahahahaha! I can’t say I wasn’t the recipient of that a time or two myself. The worst was in college right before one of my classes. I was preparing myself for a short speech, sitting next to a cute guy outside under a tree. PLOP on my shoulder ~ I said “What was that? and OMG”, he said “EW!”, I was late to class cause I had to wash off my hair and shirt, and to top it off the cover letter of my report got trashed because my professor refused to accept it with debris. Fun times.

  2. All I can say is, well I wish I could have seen that!!!!
    I have only been “pooped on” one time, we were on a ferry in Galveston ( feeding the sea gulls bread- really dumb)! As soon as the poop landed on my leg, Zach wiped it off with a slice of bread and threw it right back in the air for the sea gulls( hopefully to the one that pooped on me)!
