College Confession #39
There’s a relatively remote path I like to take to get to a Music History class and it’s lined with hedges. I was walking this path one day, and there is another guy on the other side walking towards me to get to his class. We’re quiet as we approach each other, just the crumble of our footsteps on the dirt.
It comes to the point where you have to look up and make eye contact or be socially awkward, so we look up at each other for a second and then suddenly out of nowhere this bird flies out of the hedges and hits this guy in the face.
I couldn’t stop myself from laughing. Then karma hits me like a bitch in the shape of another god damn bird. It flies out and its wing slaps me in the face and he laughs. We stand there laughing uncontrollably for a moment then we kept walking our separate ways.
