The story of the Blue Footed-Boobies?
Oh golly. Oh good gracious. What an adventure that was! Well if I'm going to tell you, I suppose I'd better start now. It make take a while!

Now, several years ago, when I was a young chap and running for BOTM (so this was March 2011), my BOTM run theme was Bird Facts. One of the facts was about a type of birds called "Blue Footed Boobies". They have big, blue feet and apparently they dance! Well, that sounded wonderful! Sam and I looked up the dance on Youtube and took to learning it. We found some big blue flippers and strapped them on our feet for added effect!

We waddled outside and began our dance. BAD IDEA! Turns out the dance of the Blue Footed Boobie is a mating dance. And boy did it work.

Those women came in ones, twos, threes, and soon twenties and fifties! They were all over us. Sam and I got separated, the ladies dragged me away from Sam and he couldn't fight them off to save me. There were too many of them. They took me away to some bushes and started kissing me all over! I just barely got away.

I managed to slip through and run for it. The problem was that I still had those darn blue flippers strapped to my little feet and I couldn't get them off to run properly, and they weighed me down too much to fly. So I had to hop and waddle away. I finally made it to Sam's place where he ushered me in before any of those females could see us. Sam got those flippers off my feet with his beak which is much stronger than mine, so we thought that we were in the clear. WRONG!

The ladies were still attracted to my blue feathers. Sam seemed to be safe, but they wouldn't leave me alone. So he put a green and yellow baseball cap on my head and had me put on his black bicycling outfit (which was huge on me!) and we stepped outside and pointed at the blue footed females for them to run. And they did! They stampeded away!

So that's the story of the Blue Footed Boobies. Since then, and it was 2 years ago now, Sam has been deathly afraid of women! He's not scared of his lady friends, no, it's just the women that are interested in him! I've managed to get over it but I'm sorry to say that Sam is still a little paranoid. I think that it would be good for him to have a girlfriend, maybe he wouldn't be so scared anymore. Just make sure that the girl you give him doesn't have blue feet!!!
