My human has been quiet the past few days and I am left to brighten the air with sound. She did rouse herself to call and cackle a bit with me this evening.
It's been frightfully cold and dreary outside, and being left to my own devices by the gloomy human, I've perfected my cabinet door opening abilities. She does manage to rouse herself from her funky thoughts when I swing the cabinet door open and begin rummaging through the contents. Rattling the wine bottles is sure to get her running in.
She did boil some navy beans just for me-I've been snacking on them and grapes, trying to improve my waistline a bit. I've been hitting the pignolias a little too hard lately....well, that and the whipped cream and the cheese.....yeah, time for a little holistic intervention or I'll be too fat to fly.
This picture has nothing to do with any of that-it's one taken this summer of the small Slim they call Prissy. Since it's been cold, Prissy has joined me in the kitchen on some days-she's about as much fun as a gloomy human-she sniffs on the floor and ignores me unless I throw something on her stupid head. I like it when she barks cause then I can tell her to "shaddup!", but if she won't bark I just yell at her to shaddup anyway. Why should I depend on her cooperation for MY amusement?
For some reason the gloomy human decided I should say "Ho Ho Ho, Merry Christmas"....and I had a delightful time pretending that I was going to do it....I'd say Haaaaaa Haaaaaaa FAAAAART!!!!!! She'd brighten up get all hopeful looking at the first Haaaa-then BAM, I'd let her have it. Hey, a bird has to do what he can to keep himself amused.
Since she's been so quiet, I've been walking over to her and going "Huh?" as if she's said something I didn't quite hear-it confuses the hell out of her.......heh heh heh heh heh......Like I said, a bird has to do, what a bird has to do.
HAW HAW HAW........(FAAAAAART) to you all! (fooled you didn't I?)
