How to Shake Up a Really Peaceful Morning

I was sitting in the hot tub this morning listening to National Public Radio (yes, we have a hot tub and listen to NPR. Just FYI, for a goddamn hippie I have very little hair) when a massive flock of starlings, perhaps fifty birds in all, took to the air from the field behind our house. I watched them pass overhead in formation and head off to the East.

Just as the last of the birds disappeared behind the trees, there was a screech and a terrible, thumping crash.

I figured out momentarily that there must have been a traffic accident on the main thoroughfare that intersects our street, but the overall effect was really disturbing.
