Weeks ago Sweet Pea and I got home and stumbled upon this - a pigeon. Not only did the pigeon make tambay (naks sosi) at the apartment, it also brought us something -- a message probably? No it's bird poop.
Look Boo, it is a good sign!
I told Sweet Pea, Hon... we are very lucky. This is a sign of good omen. I saw something like this in the movie Under the Tuscan Sun. This is a sign of good things to come. We got water and some crackers and left it under the table where the bird can see it. We hid from a distance and watched the bird made tuka the crackers and water. We even tried to scare the bird away so that it will fly out of the apartment so that it can join its friends, but no, it stayed, and made tambay for the night. Days after that incident, we tried our luck by purchasing some lotto scratch cards and, believe it or not, we won a series of 20 to 300 pesos. That money we won - I always keep it in my wallet. I always refer to it as "my lucky peso bills." I even wrote the date and that fact on the bill itself! That's just one of the things that lucky bird brought.. I believe in luck. Luck can be acquired and can be created. I don't believe in bad luck, though. I think there is no such thing as bad luck - only lost opportunities.
Now tell us Mr. pigeon, what kind of present did you bring us?
