It was a blustery Spring day yesterday when Harold landed on my doorstep.
You do remember Harold, don’t you?
I invited Harold inside for a hot cup of Mint Magic tea:
As Harold’s feathers started to warm-up, he started chirping, I mean, CHATTING almost non-stop!
Here is some of our conversation….
“You know summer is coming,” said Harold while tapping his beak impatiently on his teacup…”
“Why yes, Harold.” I replied quietly.
“So I think it is time to roll out some fun!” Replied Harold, waving his wings enthusiastically.
“How do you suggest I do this?” I replied calmly.
“Well, I think you could start a Weird Bird Wednesday on your blog,” said Harold, spilling a little tea on his scarf in his excitement.
“Oh?” I replied with caution.
“Why yes,” said Harold, “You could create one of your weird birds from dictionary.com – word of the day. And maybe your readers will want to suggest a word now and then too!”
“That may work,” I replied as the imagination wheels started spinning in my head.
“And I will get the ball rolling by suggesting the first word for your weekly series,” said Harold with a smile on his beak.
(How could I turn down a smiling bird!) “Okay, I will do it!” I said happily. Harold stood and gave me a high-five with his wing.
“What word do you suggest for the first Weird Bird Wednesday?” I asked.
“Ninnyhammer!” Shouted Harold as he giggled and flew out my door…
Here is my Ninnyhammer bird (AKA – A Noodlehead):
Now you know how some of my creative ideas get started! Harold and I hope you play along and suggest words for a future, Weird Bird Wednesday!
Happy Smiles! :-)))
