A couple posts back I was writing about the native New Zealand Owl and other birds around my house, well I decided to try and find it again to show my friend. So we waited until around midnight when it started calling and went out to look for it with a spot light, we were under the tree and I was searching for it when I heard a voice from below me.
"Heeeeellllloooooooo" it said. I was surprised by this and aimed the torch lower, where before my eyes there was a bathtub, with scented candles around and a naked man having a soak. "Ah Hi..." I replied not sure how my bird hunt had come to this. He spoke in a voice that carried on a bit and said to me "Ahhhh you muuust be the boy that lives at that house over there, I don't think we have had a chance to meet yet". We introduced each other and I explained the situation, he was actually rather nice to talk to to. We decided to give up looking for the Owl since our conversation had scared it off, but as we were leaving he exclaimed "Youuu simply must come out for a soak some time in the night young man". >_>
