    The Super-Awkward Ibis
    Have you ever seen an ibis in a tree? The answer is: No. This is because ibises (ibii?) were not made for sitting in trees. Clearly. But nobody told this ibis...

    To set the scene: A busy intersection. Cars queueing up. People rushing by.

    A lone ibis stands on the footpath in front of the school on the corner. Someone is coming. The ibis looks around desperately. Where to go?

    It looks up. There is a jacaranda tree, a single branch hanging in view over the wall. With a flurry of wings, the ibis flies up and grabs the end of the branch. It sways dangerously above the heads of passers-by, perching with wings outspread on what could only really be called a glorified twig.

    A girl on her way towards the station after work stares at it and wishes she had a better camera on her phone. Later, she goes home and blogs about it.

    Fade to black.

    (Yes, this is all I have to offer after months of non-blogging. Leave me alone.)
