Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise July 29, 2015

Daily Exercise Genre: Narrative thread.

About today's writing prompt genre: Take the following story aspect and work it into a piece, whether poetry or prose, whether you explore what led up to this place in the story, it begins with the thread, or the thread is merely a tiny aspect of the story that has crystallized around the original image. However you choose to write it, use the following as a jumping off point.
Who're you callin a STUPID pigeon?

Today's thread is...

"Six months of planning down the drain because of a stupid pigeon."

How is this the case? What was being planned, a heist, a space shuttle launch, a long voyage in the 1600s? Why was it ruined by the pigeon? Was it something that the pigeon represented like land, or that there is still life on the planet? Did a pigeon draw attention to something that was meant to be hidden? There are plenty of options with this one, pick one angle and run with it.
