The Dead Bird Theory




We found this blunt looking couple by the window today while we were in tandem with our routine work in the lab. At the end of the day what occured to us was neither of the two had moved an inch since morning. We folks wondered what made them sit there without having anything to do. It was quite a puzzle. Birds are supposed to fly! Aren’t they?

While we were watching them and discussing their inertia at length, a friend amongst us mentioned ”Maybe they are old, blind and are dying!”, you know the sort of empathy and mood  that floats in the room when someone says something  of that sort. Well I carried some back home. I haven’t stopped thinking about them since then. Why would someone want to sit like that and wait for death of all the things. Or maybe it makes more sense to take some moment off from our daily humdrum, just to sit and think how much closer we are getting to death day by day. Freaky stuff, isn’t it? I guess thoughts like these makes you make your life more livable, so go out there and make the most of it.

Here is what my favorites have to say about this theory:
