bird

my mom has an agreement with us girls... (the three stooges) i mean us three sisters... that all her earthly goods has a sticker under it... so one day when she travels to the pearly gates... we won't fight about her stuff... she's given each item away before it's necessary... so no fighting will ensue after her death... good idea right? we think so... for example every so often I'll tell her... mamma that there pot is mine right?... and she'll smile and say...yes sweets, the sticker is stuck baby! and that will be that...

this part of the post will only make sense later so relax...
on Monday my BIL was supervising his mansion building activities currently underway... and out of nowhere an African grey parrot flies to him and lands on his shoulder! and as any normal human being would do... he grabbed the bird and made a beeline for the front door... to hide the bird from the neighbours...

it's a baby bird still... very cute to say the least... and let me tell you... the extended family really wants this bird!!! but we did the right thing... posters up all over the place... but nobody has claimed Bird yet! so either Bird flew further than we expected... or his owners don't deserve him... we decided and hope and pray that it's the latter :) due to the fact that nobody in our family has ever owned a bird, we didn't have a birdcage handy to stuff Bird into for the night... so my BIL took Bird to the nearest pet shop... and there Bird will stay until it's clear that nobody is looking for him/her...

let me just tell you... everybody loves Bird... Bird for some reason doesn't like me... unreal i know!... but what the heck... i LOVE Bird so for the time being i don't mind him biting me or giving me the evil eye... he is too cute... he nibbles on my mother's hearing aid (mwhahahahahahaha i know!)... and to say that my mom has fallen in love with this bird is an understatement...

so my dear BIL (who also sort of fell in love with Bird although he'll never admit it)... has decided in his infinite wisdom that Bird will come home to grandma if nobody claims him... even if somebody does claim him he's buying my mom another African Grey... ain't that sweet!

i thought so...!

anyway... as soon as mamma gets her parrot I'm asking her to stick my sticker under Bird's foot!
(he will most likely outlive me and my mom... life expectancy about 60)

As the owner of the sweetest parrot (actually he's not always sweet but is always funny) I know just how you feel. He makes kissy noises at me from under his cage cover when he's supposed to be sleeping.

sweets said...

charm: see!! that's exactly the kind of thing that i just can't resist...!!! so sweet!!

CAN'T

My uncle's birds have burping competitions with him. It's really gross, but absolutely hilarious.

OMW... You have such a clever clever MAMA!!

Hmmm... it strikes me that the sticker system might be open to abuse. What's to prevent you - or any of your sibs - from doing a bit of removal & replacement?

sweets said...

tam: can't wait to teach this bird really funny stuff myself :)

bic: i know... i shall keep her :)

kyk: nobody wants to die young :)

Haha... believe it or not, I myself inherited a African Grey - it was in the will and everything!
The bluddy thing despises me (and the feeling became mutual once he chomped my finger!). Anyway, my folks inherited him from me and they are all happy together now.

I can't relate, can't stand birds as pets! Make too much mes!

sweets said...

pol: i saw you evil woman :) no worries i actually love meme's!

stefan: hello :) that's my friendly welcome smile! i've heard that people actually do put parrots in their will because they outlive their owners... hehe so you got yourself one did you? that's classic :)~

jenty: they do mess but hey kids mess too :) a kid should have some sort of pet, come on mommy get with the program ;)

My rents got an African Grey Parrot (was a baby) and only kept it for 2 weeks cause apparently it was EXACTLY like having a baby again and it demanded attention ALL the time. They couldn't handle it.

Pity as my mother had always wanted one but she couldn't deal :(

They're gorgeous birds though!

my granny did almost the same thing with her earthly belongings... mine are just listed in my will- but since there's really only damien there's not much of an issue.
taking on the responsibility of any kind of parrot is not to be taken lightly- they age almost like humans do too- even going through the terrible two's and the teenager crap!
whoever had bird clearly doesn't deserve the precious thing!!!
