Bailey catches a bird
(as told to Todd)
Bailey: I caught a bird! I caught a bird! I actually caught a real bird!
Kahlua: A pigeon.
Bailey: I was going for my walk this morning! With Kahlua and Dad! On our block! And, and, I peeked around a stoop, and I just, using my instincts as a hunting animal, I just pounced on him.
Kahlua: The pigeon was asleep.
Bailey: And I got his wing in my mouth! And he started flapping around like this! (Demonstrates bird flapping around.) I could barely hang onto him! But I didn't let go! I just went like this! (Demonstrates clenched teeth.)
Kahlua: Anyone could've gotten him. He looked sickly.
Bailey: And then Dad said "Drop him! Drop him!" But I didn't want to let him go! Then Dad stuck his shoe between me and the bird, and I couldn't hold him, and he kind of just ran away under a car!
Kahlua: Dad saved Bailey from getting pecked to death by a sickly pigeon.
Bailey: It was so cool! My first real bird! I'm, like, an alpha-male hunting dog!
Kahlua: You're pathetic.
