Inside, Outside

Dumb bird. Dave didn’t know how it got inside.

For 45 minutes he chased it around his studio as it hopped around and squawked, eluding him. He stubbed his toe and spent a few minutes of his own squawking and hopping in pain. (So much for going barefoot.) Finally he managed to catch it. He checked it out and it seemed unharmed, just fatigued. He set the bird free, wished it well, and limped back inside.

As he closed the door he noticed a silhouette in the window. Yet another bird, inside his studio. Sighing, Dave reached for his shoes.
