So, I was walking to work as I don't live far away, and decided to take a small shortcut

Suddenly I got hit in the head, and there was no one behind me and nothing on the ground. I look up and find a really pissed hawk squawking in a tree. Apparently thats what body checked my head lol, and left a decent size scratch under my hair.

Anyone else have a weird or significant thing happen to them lately?

That was an interesting story. My fiance's parent's cat got mad at me last week and intentionally clawed my leg. It was a revenge thing for her I think. I moved her out of my way because she was under foot. Apparently, being under foot was a big deal to cat at the time. I never had a cat act in revenge.

But the hawk is pretty crazy. I have never ever heard of a hawk randomly attacking a person.

Most likely it was defensive posturing. Probably the hawk had a nest in the area and thought you might be looking for some sweet tasting hawk eggs.

Although it wasn't anytime recent, I do have a completely dorked out story about interesting insect comings and goings.
Remember, if you choose to read the story below, you have made your own decision to waste your own time.

I hiked Isle Royal solo one summer a while back and stopped near a rocky shoreline. I sat there for a while and probably had lunch or something. I remember sitting there and being plagued by what would otherwise be known as common houseflys (muscidae). I sat there and stayed calm and just enjoyed the view, despite the flies using their sponging mouthparts to suck up precious NaCl deposited on my skin from the sweat. I remember noticing a robber fly(asilidae) land on the rock right in front of me. I figured he was here for the feast so I'd better stay put. I remember I sat there for quite a while waiting for it to make it's move. I eventually looked away and hadn't noticed it take flight. I looked back to where it was on the rock and it was gone. I think less than a minute later the robber fly landed at it's perch right in front of me again with a muscid fly impaled on it's proboscis. It felt pretty good being the bait in that situation.

And I could go into getting punched in the back of the head in Seattle a few years back, but's that another completely pointless story too.

As a creator of pointless stories, I always read pointless stories with delight. Your move, sir.

And I dont know how i pissed it off, it may have had a nest up in the trees, but it sure hurt.

Well, it is common knowledge that chicks dig scars. It makes for a heck of a story..

"I got this scar saving a kitten/puppy/otherwise adorable animal from a hawk. It is a price I have to pay for being a man with a compassionate heart."

Pointless stories are like pretzels and peanuts. They go much better with a cold beer. Just give us a heads up so i can make a run to the fridge.

Are you at all chicken or rabbit like in appearance?
