10 Minutes In The Lives Of 2 Parakeets

Nappy keets

8:07 p.m.: Stuart the Parakeet moves from the upper back perch to the upper front perch.

8:09 p.m.: Jesus the Parakeet follows Stuart.

8:11 p.m.: Stuart begins preening Jesus’s head feathers. Jesus is displeased. Stuart has gone too far. Attempts to bite Stuart. Several squawks are exchanged.

8:11 – 8:13 p.m.: Much chirping ensues as grievances are aired.

8:14 p.m.: Silence.

8:15 p.m.: In a bold and unexpected move, Jesus decides to drink from the water bottle.

8:16 p.m.: Stuart shuffles from one end of the perch and then thinks better of it. Shuffles back to the other end. Cocks head.

8:17 p.m.: Exhausted, they call it a day.

Let me preface this by saying I have what is probably an overly enthusiastic appreciation for your parakeets. (SOOOO adorable!)

However, this sounds like the posting of a desperate woman. We're going to have to find you a job, missy. :-)

i can't think of another adjective a woman likes less to describe her than "desperate." in any context.

way to keep up her morale.
