Every morning Steve and I workout in the gym here on campus. Well, this morning when we were walking into Moody we noticed a bird had trapped itself inside the building and was flying franticly around the halls trying to get outside. As we got closer Steve noticed it was not a bird but a bat. Moody has been known to have bats so we were not surprised by this. As we got closer to the scared animal it calmed down and hung itself in the corner of the ceiling. Right before we passed Steve kinda laughed and said "wouldn't it be funny if it dive bombed us?" I think the bat heard his comment because as soon as he finished his sentence the bat sure did dive bomb us! We both ducked and hit the ground right as the flying mammal flew over our heads. On his upward swoop we notice he was coming back for more so we start running down the hall. There are 2 things you must know: 1) this is hilarious so we are laughing extremely hard and 2) bats do not give up. After we had run a couple steps we stopped and turned to see where our friend had flown to. This made the experience all the more funny because when we turned we came face to face with the bat- he was still chasing us! We ran the rest of the way and busted into the gym laughing. We are laughing pretty hard at this point and make a scene when we come in the room.. I don't think everyone thought it was as funny as we did. All during my workout I could see the bat flying back and forth in front of the door- as if he was waiting on his next victim to enter into the hall:)!
We had no bat problems when we were walking home- guess he got tired of waiting. Laughter is good for the soul. Because I started off the morning with laughter I am in a pretty good mood right now, or maybe it is because I survived an attack by a wild animal. Either way it was a funny story- thought I would share:)!!
Hand full of love...
