A Skittish Bird at the Airport

Dear Diary:

While at Newark Airport recently, sitting at the gate awaiting departure for Chicago, my brother, sister-in-law and I were sitting near a woman with a pet carrier, from which loud, sort of weird squeaking noises arose every now and then. We couldn’t figure out what was in there! A cat? A rodent of some sort?

Boarding began, and as we were seated, the woman came down the aisle with the pet carrier. I had to ask what was in the carrier.

“A bird,” she replied, adding, “He doesn’t like to fly.”
