Today’s Special by D. Avery
She and the older woman continued to sit together on the bench well after they’d distributed all the birdseed.
“Some people say to let the birds forage on their own, say not to feed the birds, makes them too dependent, but I say it’s okay because I do know these birds; we’re connected.”
“I think it’s possible you’re also connected to a squirrel or two.”
Laughing, the older woman pushed herself up from the bench; she rose too, and asked if she might want to join her somewhere for lunch.
“Oh, I know just the place, a little diner not too far from here, don’t even ask to see the menu, just order the special. It’s not always what you thought you wanted but then it’s always just what you need.”
