I was out walking and passed a storefront where two employees were looking concernedly at the sidewalk.
One stooped to pick something up. The other said, "Ugh, don't touch it!"
I got closer and saw it was a freshly dead green-yellow bird; apparently just having flown into the glass.
"Look, it has a leg band!" said the employee holding the limp body.
"It's a parakeet from a pet store," said the other.
I chimed in, "More like an ex-parakeet, by Python standards."
I got two slow, head-swivel takes, followed by two utterly blank stares.
I am a fossil. :)
