Damn Early Morning Birds!!

  • Print

You know how certain sounds or smells trigger things from your past?  You can smell a certain food or a certain perfume and it will instantly take you back to a particular period of your life.  Maybe someone you knew wore that perfume or you were around that type of food a lot and smelling it again instantly triggers those memories.  That happens to me when I hear early morning birds.  Early morning birds should be a happy sound right?  Don't get me wrong, it is a happy cheerful sound but do you know what it reminds me of?  Being up all night after an alcohol and drug fueled party situation.  Which used to happen to me a lot back in the mid 80's and early 90's.  I had some great times!!  Irresponsible yes and I grew out of it thank God!  I would get into party mode and go non stop then try and go to bed...never could sleep for obvious reasons!  I would lay in bed trying and trying to shake off the party and then suddenly...early morning birds!  When I heard that sound I knew a new day was dawning.  A day after a night that I didn't sleep, a day that was going to hurt.  Because I did that so many times it was ingrained into my memory and now when I am walking in the parking lot of the radio station at 5 o'clock in the morning and I hear them I think to myself:  "Damn early morning birds!"
