I Don't Like Birds

Did you know that a bird shitting on you being good luck is a Russian superstition?

Earlier today I went for a walk along Grafton St. I'd been in Spain recently and hadn't done my customary stroll. As I walked I was thinking how much I prefer to walk in Malaga. I was still thinking this when I got to the end of the street and turned back. That was when a bird - a Dublin bird, I'll bet - didn't just shit on me, but crapped, from its secret sniper point, into my mouth, right into my barely open mouth - good shot, in fairness.

I'm gonna sit back and wait for good luck. Surely if the bird shits into your mouth it's a bit of extra good fortune.
