I was driving to work this morning when my car stalled in the damp
weather. I was sitting in the car at the side of the highway,
contemplating my next move, when a pigeon flew down and landed right
in the middle of the hood of the car. It seemed fairly tame, and I
soon became fascinated in watching it up close as it strutted around
and made cooing noises. A few minutes passed, and two more pigeons
flew in and joined the first bird. Pigeons seem to be attracted by
crowds, and soon I was sitting there with a whole hood full of
pigeons, all cooing loudly and beginning to change the color of my
hood. Gradually I noticed that the birds seemed to be trying to get
my attention, which was unnerving, since I had always regarded
pigeons as rather stupid birds. But, sure enough, several of them
were dragging a piece of rope around on the hood, and several others
were flying out in front of the car and returning to the hood. All of
a sudden, I realized what they were doing, so I yanked open the door
and wildly chased them all off. No way was I going to be pigeon towed!
