Listen! Nature is Calling?

Listen! Nature is Calling? April 7, 2016

Perhaps you have heard the saying, “When nature calls, we must answer, or have an accident.” Well, what if answering nature is easier said than done? Here is a true story with a new twist to that old saying.

My cousin and I were backing out of the driveway in the golf cart on our way to lunch at the Country Club when I heard a phone ring. You know, the new cool ring-tones you download into your cell phone from iTunes or the Apple app store?

We looked at each other and asked at the same time, ”Is that your cell phone’s new ring- tone?”

As we both shook our head no, the phone rang again… in the tree beside the street.

As we looked up in the direction of the ring tone, looking down on us was a large Mocking Bird. To complete the joke he rang us one more time.

“Hello?” I answered to which the bird promptly flew away to mess with someone else’s head.

Nature is amazing and is always listening. It also seems to have a sense of humor.

The next time you hear an annoying cell phone that keeps ringing and you cannot locate its owner look up in the nearest tree. Nature may be calling.
