Adaptation is a key component to the survivability of the individual and by extension to the species to which it belongs. At first glance the common house sparrow might not be the first example of this that comes to mind. It is native to most of Europe, the Mediterranean Basin and much of Asia, but whether by intentional or accidental causes, it has become the most widely distributed wild bird. A primary key of its success is adaptability to a wide range of environments. The setting in ‘Lunch Break’ suggests something of its long kinship with human activities and structures.
