Zoë, The Bird Hunter.

Zoë, aka The Intern, likes to birdie hunt. Around dawn, she can be found lurking around the windows, bobbing and weaving, trying to find birds to watch. In the springtime, it’s a lot of fun to work with the windows open and hear the birds chirping, and then watch as she wakes up from a nap and races over for a better view.

I didn’t have the heart to tell her this, but the other day, a bird landed on my leg! I was rushing around the city, running errands for the business, when I walked past a woman talking loudly—and walking slowly—pointing her phone down at her legs. When I turned around, I noticed she had a new friend. After a few moments, the bird flew from her and attempted to land on another woman (who was completely freaked out and ran away, terrified).

So the bird decided to land on me! And I was cool with that, and I took a few photos. Then it flew away! And that’s my story, but Zoë doesn’t know. So please don’t tell her, she would not be amused.
