Another bird saved

I went to Big Lots tonight hoping to find a cell phone case/clip for my new phone. I walked it & there was a small house finch trying to find it's way out. It kept going to the window, looking out. I mentioned the bird to the employees. "Oh yea, it's been in here all day. We have the door open for it to get out." That was it. I wasn't going to let that little bird die in that store. I went to the toy section of the store & found one of those butterfly nets. I calmly chased that bird all over the store. I was inches away 3-4 times. I climbed their display in the front window. I climbed on step stools. I was there for over an hour. But I caught that little bird & released it outside. There was some of it's buddies there waiting. They all flew off together. Then I left since they didn't have what I wanted. Stopped at the grocery store. Got home & had a ice cold Corona & slice of lime as a reward. Life is good.

Think of the great stories you gave that bird to tell.

"I was in HELL!"
"No way!"
"Way! It was a Big Lots dude!"
"Yeah, I'm saying. Then God appeared and chased me around for, like, an hour."
"Damn! That's intense!"
"No shit. Fucked me up. I reckoned she wanted to eat me or something."
"So what happened? How you get here?"
"Turns out she was Greenpeace and shit and just wanted to help me man."
"No way. That is straight-up awesome."
"Word that, bird. Word that."

Stink- Loved it!
I tried to be very calm, & even would talk to the little one. Why it took so long, was that I would let it be calm for a few minutes before I would try to get it to move.
