A Nerd Is An Easy Thing To Spot

I was lolling about minding my own business on Friday, January 24, trying to watch the opening segment of The View. Not because I enjoy those harpies, but because I loathe them. And I like to shout at the TV. A snow day had given me the opportunity to kick back and verbally abuse Joy and Whoopi. Then the bottom dropped out. Like a needle screeching across a 72 rpm vinyl lp, the #1 son reared his sleepy head. That boy would not shut up.

Hey! Mom. You've got to see this.

I know. I've got to see the beginning of The View.

No. Not that! THIS.

It can wait.

No. It can't.

He shoved his phone under my nose. Or so I wished. Under my nose instead of between my eyes and the television screen. That boy is persistent.

What is this?

It's a hawk.


It's a hawk inside the Library of Congress.

That's very interesting. Birds get inside places all the time. Like the Basementia gym.

But this is a hawk in the Library of Congress!

How did you find this out?

Well, I was just checking the Library of Congress web site...


Here's the hawk. And the ending.

That is kinda cool. Tell the nerd I said thanks for those 4 seconds of amusement. :)

Mommy Ann,
I will tell him. IF I can get his nose out of the Library of Congress.
