they say doves mate for life.
every morning i rise from my slumber, walk to the front door and stick my head out the door.
i look to the left, then to the right to make sure none of my neighbors are outside.
i dont want them to laugh at me in my pajamas.
then i put on my flip flops and walk outside to retrieve the newspaper.
usually the doves are startled by me and they fly off drunkenly a few feet.
they like to hang out in the dirt of our courtyard.
no idea why.
arent the trees a better spot for birds?
yesterday i talked to my neighbor and i said, why do you think those crazy doves hang out in the dirt so much?
she was all, lazy maybe?
recently ive only seen one dove in the morning.
