As it was told to me by @mzsitka
Riding to work this morning I came across seagulls near Pike’s Place who had gotten some fish parts. One of them panicked and dropped it’s fish belly inches from my face. After recovering from that, another seagull dive bombed me to join a feeding frenzy at a 30 pound garbage bag of popcorn.
I replied with
I ran over a seagull once. It flew into my wheel and I heard a pop as I rode over it. Took off quick fearing its flock would attack me or something. Felt bad for a while and then realized plenty of seagulls by the sea and maybe it survived. Didn’t see it again.
