bird brain

On here you will sometimes hear me bitching about something I saw out on the freeway on my way to work. Today is one of those days!

In Paris when I drive to work, thus far, everybody is focused on weaving their way through traffic, not hitting each other on the narrow streets, etc. Here, one sees many people yammering on the phone, eating, and the occasional make-up ritual or newspaper reader.

Yesterday in my rearview mirror I saw a guy with a cockatiel perched on his steering wheel. Confirmed when he passed me.

NOW I have seen pretty much everything.
