More Gratuitous Pictures Of My Parakeets
At least someone in this family is sleeping.
Dad: "How are the parakeets?"
Me: "Honestly, maybe it's because I'm working from home now but I fall more and more in love with them each day. I finally understand how the universe convinces mothers to stay at home with their squalling infants."
Working from home when you own birds can be awkward, though. I was on the phone with an editor the other day when he interrupted me to ask, "Excuse me, are you calling me from a jungle? What is that chirping in the background?"
Please pour out some birdseed for Jesus the Parakeet who is going through a "severe molt" right now, according to the vet, and is genuinely unhappy with life.
