That First Laugh

High School speech class was painful. Skipped a lot. Only good memory was the one speech I gave in front of the class. It was one of the quick, less painful ones, before she assigned the serious speeches. I talked about my parakeet, Sunshine, who kept unlatching the cage door and escaping. Things would get lively and frantic, and at one point she sat perched right above me...and dropped a load of bird poo on my forehead. The class cracked up. I wasn't sure how to get that reaction again, but the memory is sweet. Turns out that was the highlight in my relationship with Sunshine, that rascal!
