A less difficult interview

Back in mid February, we had an interview that presented some difficulties and while we did muddle through, the end result was not all I hoped for. So I was pretty glad to look out the window the other morning and spot my old friend, Bob the bluejay. I thought I would go out and see if he had anything to say.If you recall, Bob refused to cooperate with me when I tried to interview him before and at first, it was looking like his attitude had not changed.
Intrepid Interviewer: Bob?Bob: Why hello there!
Interpid Interviewer: Wow – I am surprised you are speaking with me today – I didn’t expect that after our last interview.
Bob: Well, I am just killing some time actually.II: Killing time? Why do you need to do that?
Bob: Things have changed a little at home.II: Things have changed? In what way? Hey – where is Harriet? Oh no – you guys haven’t split up or anything have you? I would hate to see that – she seems so nice!
Bob: No No No! We haven’t split up – far from it. We had children is what we did!II: Well congratulations! You guys must be pretty excited and happy now that you have kids!
Bob: I thought I would be, but I gotta tell ya – it is not at all like I imagined it would be. You haven’t heard noise until you have listened to a nest full of squawking baby Blue Jays! Good grief – they never shut up! And Harriet is all tied up taking care of them – feeding them and teaching them stuff and cleaning up the poop all the time. Believe me, there is no end to the poop! If I tell Harriet I was talking with you, she won’t think I am such a jerk for leaving her alone with them for so long.II: I understand it can be a bit overwhelming, but at least with you guys, they don’t stick around for long. Human babies stay with their parents for 18 years!
Bob: 18 years! Whoa – I can’t imagine how much poop you have to clean up!
II: They eventually get potty trained but I do believe we have you beat in the poop department.
Bob: That really gives me something to think about. I am kind of jerk I guess, going off and leaving poor Harriet to look after everything.
II: Life is a process, Bob. We all learn as we go along, you know.Bob: That is so profound, man.
II: Well, I do what I can.
Bob: Guess I will take this little snack to Harriet to show her a some appreciation.
II: See ya later Bob – tell Harriet I said hello!
Bob: We will be back with the kids before too long – let you foot our grocery bills for awhile!
II: I will be looking forward to that Bob!

    Brilliant emotion capture. I swear Bob actually looks exhausted in the picture when he “tells” you they had kids.
    What wonderful words and pictures!

  13. Laura ~Peach~ says:

    WOW on that camera I looked it up and its one dreams are made of! VERY COOL! are you a professioonal photographer? If not you should be!
    Hugs Laura

    Laura – I am not even close to a professional. It is a very good camera and I get really lucky sometimes. These birds hang out at the feeder that is just a couple feet from my back door and they are used to me because I am out there all the time – so they let me get close. I am so glad you like the photos and thanks so much for the compliment – I really appreciate it!
