A Calm Storm

Sick of being sick.

Apparently a pigeon was trapped on our sales floor for 2 hours yesterday. I missed the excitement because I was home sick. Most Chicagoans have a hate-hate relationship with pigeons…they’re always getting in the way and making a mess. I’m amused by them, they are inherently silly-looking animals.

I have been sick for more than a week, and staying home yesterday was a great idea. When I was at my parent’s house on Sunday they took care of me so well (thanks Mom & Dad!!). There is just something about being home, I didn’t want to leave.

I woke up this morning and headed downstairs to the kitchen. My roommates had left me honey, lemon juice, and packets of tea on the counter with a note: “For Sholeh”. Lauren brought me tea yesterday morning, Maysoon brought me tea at 1 am, Chineze offered to get me medication, and Amber keeps asking if there is anything she can do for me. So sweet!

  1. That is kinda funny. When I was staying at the Sheraton Tower in Chi-town back in July, a pigeon found its way into the lobby. From there it saw light and made a break for it…. Only it was only glass windows. The exits were back into the lobby or two floors down. ๐Ÿ™

  2. one time a crow entered our basement by way of the dryer vent (i guess someone left the dryer door open, lucky for the bird). we found it perched on a line down there, swinging back and forth. then it got trapped above the ceiling panels and getting it out was an adventure.

    hope you feel better soon.
