Birds. Oh my God, Birds.
I got off the subway stop in queens today and had just turned the corner in the direction of my office when the most horrifying thing happened. A chicken stood in the middle of the sidewalk facing me. A huge disgusting Chicken! I think I probably screamed out loud. Everyone else walking around glanced at it but didn't think much of it. Hello people? There is a freakin' chicken in the sidewalk!!! I didn't want to get near it. The thing was in an angry panic and was running around surprisingly fast. I was in the street trying to stay as far away as possible and get to work. Then I watched the thing strut on into a bakery. All the people inside looked down at it but didn't seem very surprised. A chicken just walked into the bakery! Then someone must have kicked it or something cause it went speeding across the street bawking. Unfortunately it was not run over. At this point I'm basically running to the office but not letting the thing out of my sight. I can not believe that the people in Queens don't find this odd. This is an omen. I should not be traveling to this dangerous borough to work anymore. It's far too dangerous to have standoffs with birds just so I can get to my desk. It's a nightmare.
