This also reminds me of when I was on a big square in Venice, full of pigeons, and my friend said 'Ooh I HATE pigeons! They deliberately fly in your face and shit on you!'I used to work in a small hospital where I shared an office with a colleague. We were walking between buildings to go to get some lunch and he was regaling me with a tale from his childhood about when a wasp had crawled into his ear and had repeatedly stung him as it tried to escape. I have no idea whether this story was true or not but have no reason to think it wasn't other than that it seems an unlikely thing to happen. To my utter astonishment, as he concluded his story a wasp flew down and stung him on the ear. I still can't quite believe it happened. But it did.
I laughed mockingly for the whole minute it took for a pigeon to select me before flying in my face and shitting on me.
