I'm supposed to go to sleep, but I really just wanted to make a brief comment about peacocks. Did you know that peacocks make one of THE most obnoxious sounds known to humankind? I am very well versed in obnoxious-ness, tending to usually enjoy annoying/unsettling/bizarre sounds. HOWEVER, peacocks are lame. You may think, as I once did, that peacocks are really cool because of their beautiful colors, and how they dance like Las Vegas showgirls with their pretty feathers (even though that analogy doesn't really work because the ones that do the dances are the males, though everything in Las Vegas is highly questionable) but they are heinous. This past weekend at a retreat a peacock would just not leave me alone when I was in the shower and was all about stalking that bathroom with his large scary noises that echoed in the bathroom. I requested he reserve those sounds for members of his same species.

Other interesting tidbit, at Happy Hills, said male peacock really likes to jump into the trees and hide just out of reach so that he cannot be carried back to his actual home.

  1. I love this blog! And I agree that peacocks are kind of scary. Annie, you write with the honesty and humor that normally exudes from you, face to face. I'm excited for the chance to keep up with all that God is doing in and through you. Rock on, my friend.
