Today, I'm going mention a couple of "s" words. During Winter, it's "snow". It's cool when you're a kid. As adults, it's mostly despised!
In the Summer, it's "seagulls". Mostly found close to bodies of water, beaches, parks, and wherever food is present! They're not only annoying to hear, but have food thievery down to a science! Referring to them as "rats with wings" is probably being to kind!
