Sadly I did not get to take photos of all the fun science, since they wheeled me into rooms that had no phone permitted signs. I am sorry!
Potoo and the descent into madness.
You wouldn’t think it to look at them, but they have a sweetly melancholic, bluesy call for attracting a mate that earns them the name Pour-me-one.
I doubt they’d even be allowed in a bar. They’d probably do something crazy like stab people with a bar stool because they remind him of his mother.
Um, “potoo” refers to an entire genus of birds (and family, by virtue of being the only ones left, the rest having presumably dropped dead of shame by proxy). While the common potoo’s song (linked in original post) is quite lovely, the great potoo’s can best be described as “WAAAAHHHH. WAAAAHHHH. WAAAAHHHHH.”
Also realmonstrosities are you reading my mind, I was JUST telling my aunt about this bird
Hahahahahaa! OK… so “WAAAAHHHH” sounds a lot more like they look.
And yes, I was just flicking through your mind a little. I’m afraid you left it on the bus.
The only potoo species I’ve ever heard had a call that sounded like “MOOOOOOUM”. Between this and the way they look with their eyes open I’m convinced these birds were designed by Allie Brosh.

getting discharged! *dances carefully* will update when I get home. Thank you all for the kind messages and support. ♡
They were ready to up my scrip for beta blockers and send me home. And then my pulse shot up to 145 again when I sat up. So I’m stuck here a bit longer. Blugh.
Surprisingly passable hospital food! Soup with mushrooms and tofu and pasta with lentils. The tea was thoroughly revolting though…
They need my arms for some tests apparently
In the ER now. Will update when I can.
