A couple of turkey vultures landed outside my office window today during my lunch break. Apparently, they come around every once in a while to prey on the dead geese and ducks around the small lakes in the immediate area. While quite possibly one of the ugliest birds you can imagine, they’re actually quite interesting to watch.
Anyway, I’m trying hard to ignore the symbolism of having a couple of vultures hovering around just outside my window. I have a couple of project deadlines early next week and am struggling to stay on top of things. Fortunately, I’m not alone in the office and on one’s going to leave my carcass out for the birdies. Still, I think I’ll make sure they are no big birds of prey flying around when I leave work today.
