Day 340: How to Weather Any Storm

When you have feathers and are living in the humid, hot, semi-tropical wilds of Houston, Texas, you may occasionally (often) need to “weather a storm,” so to speak.

But no matter how frequently your mommy explains that outdoor flora and fauna appreciate these raucous downpours, you fail to understand how this has anything to do with you.

The truth is, thunderstorms include “thunder,” which is loud and unpredictable and unmusical and scary (so is “lightning,” just for the record).

Plus, the rain beating against your window ledge perch makes it impossible to nap as restfully as you prefer.

To add insult to final injury, while all this is going on, you have to continually raise the volume of your chirping just to hear the sound of your own voice!

To cope, you have launched a groundbreaking initiative to weather storms more enjoyably in the future.

This strategy is called the “Mid-Thunderstorm Photo Shoot.”

Here, a very cute feathery model (who also happens to be the technique’s creator) demonstrates this new cutting-edge storm survival technique.

Note: To use this technique at home, you will also need your large featherless assistant to bring along one of those small flashing devices they are all so fond of.

First, select a safe, secure, interior location of your home for the photo shoot.

Next, glare with "fierceness" at your large featherless assistant so she knows to start the shooting part.

From here, you can strike a cute pose....

And continue striking cute poses for as long as you want (or until the thunderstorm ends or your assistant's iPhone storage runs out, whichever comes first).
