I was out working when I saw a seagull gliding up ahead of me. It's windy, cold, and in short a November day in Seattle. So I'm watching this seagull when I realize that it has it's legs tucked inside it's feathers. Normally they just stick their legs out behind them and fly, but this bird has them tucked in close, under the feathers. As I watch, it sticks out one leg, wiggles it, gives it a shake, and pulls it back under the feathers. Then it sticks out it's other leg, wiggles it, gives it a shake, and pulls it back in, all the while just gliding on the wind. So my meaningless thought of the day for you is this:
Does a seagull get a charley horse?
