we have this family routine, going to the park to feed the ducks in the Lake.
the other day, we went there as usual, but because it was a hot day, no ducks were see in the horizon. More as a humorous gesture I raised my hand holding a biscuit, confidently waiting for some bird to come.
My wife laughed at me, saying, we’re wasting our time. but I told her to give me a couple of minutes, and a couple of minutes later I heard a crow standing on a nearby tree. I rose the biscuit again, and the crow noticed it and landed on the ground nearby. As I started throwing crumbs to him, another crow join him.
Full of myself I demanded my wife to declare me King of the Forest, to which she said that “a coconut” is a more suitable title for someone who think two crows is a success. but before she could finish her punch two pigeons and a sparrow join the party, and soon before last 11 additional birds landed at my feet.
“You see, Darling” I concluded “that’s just like in the social media, you just need to spread the crumbs and with a little patience many will come”
( and yes, in the end I was proclaimed king of the Forest…)
