What A Shot!

I think it’s supposed to be lucky or something

I was walking in from the car and then…

Splat!

Right on the forehead. What a shot, I thought.

I got thinking of all that had to happen for that bird’s shit to hit my forehead exactly when it did.

The reason the entire universe came into being can be explained by that single ‘apparent’ event.

The whole universe in a bird shit.

Maybe I’ll do the lotto tonight.

Howdy, I’m Larry, Writer & Artist. Thanks for taking the time to read my stuff. I write about art & creativity. When I’m not doing that I write short stories about the ordinary lives of people and the challenges they face. My stuff can be edgy, hard hitting, and sometimes controversial, but never contrived.
