Yesterday I walked up on a rather adorable rescue operation. Having discovered a sickly pigeon, two elderly women were attempting to revive it with a refreshing glass of water. When I came onto the scene, they were arguing over whether to pour the water on top of the pigeon. One of them was insisting that “he would like it because it’s so hot,” while the other countered that “it would scare the hell out of him.” The argument got pretty heated. They looked to me for a deciding vote, but I refused to pick a side.
