While getting my laundry, I was teasing tom's bird by making little chirpy noises with my lips every time it made noise. It surprised me by flying from across the room right into my face. I tried making lots more noise, i.e. screaming at it, to make it go away, but it didn't really work. No idea why I thought it would. Seems kind of dumb in hindsight, but hey, I had a whole buttload of the flapping and the wings and the confusion going on in my face. I kind of batted it away and lost my balance since I was trying to hold the moderately heavy laundry basket and fell over. I hope I didn't hurt it, but it seems to be continuing to make the same noises it used to, so that's a good sign, I guess.
