Kevin woke me up. "Dad, Dad, there's a bird in the house!"  I looked up, and there was one flitting around my overhead light fixture.

I said "Calm down.  Get a broom and gently try to chivvy it to a window."  He did and it landed where yugioh_boy could throw a towel over it, take it to the door and release it.  It flew away, undamaged, leaving only one spot of bird poop on the carpet to clean up.

I said, "Knowing that all criminals are a superstitious, cowardly lot, my disguise must be able to strike terror into their heart. I must be a creature of the night. I know...I'll be Birdman, Attorney-at-Law!"
 

yugioh_boy was so gentle and straightforward, without panic, that I suggested he rethink that idea he had about becoming a veterinarian.  Then I started singing "You know the bird bird bird, the bird is the word!"

They almost threw a pillow at me.

Are you sure that your real name isn't Peter Griffin? ;)

I freak out on the rare occasion that a live bird gets in the house. Good for you for calming Kevin down and for your other son's gentle way of stepping up! (I don't suppose they'd ever heard "Surfin' Bird" before?)

@ SD comic con's FAMILY GUY panel, they showed that episode un-inked. I was there with my (step)dad and my son, it was a family bonding moment and we all laughed ourselves into a foaming snot.
