So last night my kids and I were watching Rudolph (it is sooo funny with their side-comments). And do you remember the bird on the Island of Misfit Toys whose flaw was that it only swam, it couldn’t fly? Well, as the elves on the sleigh were giving each toy an umbrella and sending them on their way to the houses below …. way way below … the elf looked at the bird and shrugged and just tossed it off the sleigh. THEY KILLED THE BIRD. THE BIRD CAN’T FLY. THAT WAS THE WHOLE POINT OF THE BIRD. I can’t believe I never noticed that before. My kids did, in a heartbeat. Let’s take a moment to remember the bird.
