I glued the eyes onto his head using great care. If I glued them crooked I couldn’t start over and he’d be all crooked-eyed and goofy-looking and I wouldn’t be able to take him seriously. The next step was very difficult because I wasn’t sure if anything else was needed. I decided nothing was, and glued his head to his body. He yawned. His feathers were stuck together from the glue dripping around. I’m not very good with tiny things like him, my hands are so big. And he’s so little. He needed feet, so I found some in the box and glued them onto the brown puff of his body. After several tense seconds he curled the talons on his new feet and I sighed. Maybe I should have given him something else.
