You Are What You Eat

You’ve heard the expression, “You are what you eat.”

The flamingo clearly demonstrates this.

Only when it eats algae or invertebrates with red pigment do its feathers turn pink.

What if the food you eat most made your hair or skin change colors? What color would you be?

Tall One

My, aren’t you the tall one? At least it appears that way from where I sit.

It’s interesting how things appear from different perspectives.

If I stood up, I bet you wouldn’t look so tall.

I’m making myself a personal challenge to try to see things from different perspectives.

If I see you behaving in a way I don’t like, I’ll ponder what might be troubling you.

My aim will be to not jump to conclusions about your intentions.

Of course, that does NOT excuse any bad behavior that you might display (just sayin’).

Beak Wrestling

These flamingos were beak wrestling.

Perhaps that’s their version of arm wrestling.

I wonder what it would be like to see flamingos do leg wrestling.

In my mind’s eye, that seems highly amusing.
