The First Robyn of Spring...


I grew up on the east coast, and as a kid, I believed that it was a sure sign of spring when you saw your first robin. For most people that is absolutely the case, since robins are migratory birds, and birds that nest in the Mid Atlantic states migrate south for the winter. However, many robins that live further north migrate south and winter in the Mid Atlantic, so as it turns out, there are always robins around, but generally you don't see them in the winter, because winter robins are much more shy, and tend to favor more remote areas, rather than urban and suburban areas. So, in the suburbs, where I lived, seeing a robin meant that the summer robins were back.

So it is in Alaska, too, though not with birds. I was driving to work today, and saw the first hooker of the spring walking the streets. Its not that they're not around in the winter; they are, but the are more shy and I assume that they tend to stay places where it is a bit warmer, like dive bars. So it is certainly a sign of spring, when you see them walking down the street, making eye contact with every male driver. And while this morning was bright and sunny, it was still quite chilly, so yes, this Robyn's breasts were red.

First hooker of spring? Too funny. Where did you grow up on the east coast? Being a New Englander myself, just curious.

Washington, DC... though I have spent plenty of time in Western Massachusetts and Connecticut... My mom is from there, and I went to high school with a guy from Hartford.
