This little seagull stole sneakers…
This scary mummy stole none.
This little seagull ate All the Way Arame Salad…
This little seagull had fun.
And this cute Pink Doughnut Eater sucked his thumb all the way home.
Because I run mainly on grass, my sneakers do not smell too pleasant. (Understatement of the century.) My sneakers smell disgusting! So, unless a downpour is predicted, said smelly sneakers remain outside when not in use.
A few weeks ago, while my family was vacationing at the beach, I went outside to lace up my sneakers in preparation for my morning run… but someone had beaten me to it. There were two seagulls, red handed beaked, at the scene of the crime, attacking my poor shoes! Luckily, those durable sneakers suffered no lasting damage. But I shudder to imagine why anyone would choose—by his or her own free will—to eat something that smells so repugnant.
Seagulls are strange specimens indeed.
