look, a pesky blackbird got my bumper crop of blueberries. He outdid my determination to get my fruit. He teased, tormented and repeatedly got under my netting.
ok, its nasty. Cruel. Blackbirds have a right to live etc. but you have to understand my frustration, nay anger.
it was with a heavy heart that I...............
pulled up a stool and sat among my blueberries and ate everything remaining. I saw aforesaid blackbird perched on my runner bean post. I teased him, tormented him, expressed my sheer pleasure vocally in eating my blueberries with great relish. I had enough to half fill a bowl and B Bird could see it. Couldn't resist a backward glance and a smug expression as I carried my bowl of blueberries indoors.
cruel? Yep. Nasty? Yep? Good feeling? You bet
