The Reason Why

I couldn’t sleep. My mind was filled with discord and restlessness.

I went out to my backyard, climbed the big tree, crawled into the nest of bluebirds, and fell fast asleep.

I was awoken by an argument. The bluebirds were fighting. I couldn’t tell what they were saying because I don’t understand chirps.

I climbed back down the tree, went inside and crawled back into my bed.

My wife woke up. She said, “You can’t sleep?”

I said, “It’s those damn bluebirds!”
