Raven and the French Fry Dilemma – p.6

September 9, 2011 at 5:24 pm 3 comments

Raven looked sideways at Cardinal, blinked and nodded. Then he suddenly took off, flapping his wings so hard that he lost a few feathers, and let out the loudest “caw-caw-caw” he’d ever uttered. He made wide circles around the parking lot, trying to be louder than the gulls. It was hard work, and a few of them tried to chase him away, but he kept circling and calling.

Once he was sure he had their attention, he flew back over to the dumpster, and hopped up to the open side door, then went inside. When he emerged, he was holding a sandwich wrapper in his beak. He took it up to where Cardinal sat, and made a fuss of pretending to find food inside of it.

Cardinal understood what Raven was doing, but not why. Still, he followed suit, and flew into the dumpster himself, returning with a plastic container. He dropped it onto the dumpster’s lid, then landed inside it and hopped around, pretending to eat.

The gulls had never been so quiet in their lives.

    I’ve heard of eating a fake sandwich (don’t ask), but I’ve never heard of faking eating a sandwich… Brilliant!
