Sometimes, like when you least expect it, things have a way of happening fast. Ever noticed that? For example, there’s this whole coil of film lying on the ground and all of a sudden: bird shadow! I looked up and saw an enormous bird, the biggest I’d ever seen. It had angry little eyes and huge claws and was headed right for Iggy. Iggy’s not very big and for a moment I thought – oh, no, not Iggy!
Which turned out to be the case, because this bird wasn’t interested in Iggy. It wanted that film, and in a flash it had the film, gripped tightly in those claws. Then – zoom – the bird was climbing high in the sky, trailing a long long strip of film. The sun shone on the film, making a beautiful sight in all that blue. The world can be a very beautiful place. We watched that bird getting smaller and smaller, me and Iggy, the gleam of the film getting dimmer and dimmer, until finally there was nothing but a black dot, and then just nothing but empty blue sky.
