The Bat-chicken...Exaggeration Level:
The campus yesterday was a zoo.
I saw a cat, a rat, a puppy and a chicken in the span of less than half hour.
The Mixture-of-Exaggeration-and-Reality-aka-Jana Level:
Oh my gosh-ness. I saw a cat and rat yesterday and they were like there and they were playing like a game. Except it was a deadly game cause the rat is probably gonna die when the cat catches it.
Then minutes later I saw this puppy just totally staring at this little fiasco. Like sitting there and watching a drama unfold between the cat and the rat.
By the look it's in eyes I swear I would have thought it was watching the latest famous series on tv. I mean it didn't even budge when I walked beside it.
Then a few steps later, I hear this awful predator-ish-someone's-out-to-kill-you-and-he/she-is-so-gonna-jump-out-that-bush-man!-sound around the bushes near the Chapel area of our campus.
I turned expecting a snake to slither out and scare the hell out me. When a chicken just walked out of it. I mean a chicken.
You don't normally see a chicken around Manila you know... especially considering the fact that no one takes care of chickens next door or anywhere near the campus area.
Maybe it's like the super-heroes of chickens.
The Lone Chicken.
Lotsa love, Jana
