Last week, The Female and The Male decided to do something strange. They refer to it as "making the craft / office room". The Female has a sizable desk in the other room, so I am curious about why she needs another for an "office". She should know that she already has a job. Her sole purpose is to take care of and entertain me and Lou. I mean really, what good are pets anyway if they can't do those simple things??? But I digress...
|Counter & cupboards slid out from the wall.|
Then The Male did a very strange thing. He went and got the spray bottle that The Female uses to mist us. He sprayed the wall and got it wet. (I was watching carefully in case he was just faking me out and was really going to spray me!) Then he wet down this stuff called "wallpaper" and - you'll never believe this - PUT IT ON THE WALL. Who ever heard of such a thing. They should have just let me chew it up and give it a few good rips on the edges. It looks far too straight for my taste.
|See that slippery floor? The white stuff is the |
"Wallpaper" that I was telling you about.

that The Female is so excited about.
Hmpf is all I have to say.
I chose to supervise from on top of a shelving unit, perched safely on top of a box up there where I was hard to reach, but had a great view.
They repeated this over and over, eventually stopping to (finally) make dinner. Here's what the room has looked like since Sunday. These pets sure take a long time to finish things. Not like us respectable parrots. If we are going to do something, we get it done!
You can see the edge of the shelving unit that I chose for my supervisory duties. This room used to be the nest for The Female's oldest hatchling, another female. I wasn't allowed in there because she had too many necklaces and earrings and other goodies that the hatchling wouldn't share. But sometimes I was sneaky and got in there anyway. It was loads of fun.
Here's a picture of something called a "Stamp Pad Holder" that The Female's Father made for her. She claims that it is very valuable to her and won't let me chew on the edges of the wood.
The holes in the side are too small for me to crawl into, so I don't really get the point. She puts these things called "reinkers" into them. I like to roll those "reinkers" around and it's especially fun when they roll off the desk. That really gets her attention!
So, now you know what's REALLY been going on around here. It's not excuse for The Female to be slacking on her writing duties. Rest assured, I am taking her lapse very seriously and she will be reprimanded. I don't take my Editor's responsibilities lightly, and if she can't step up to the job, well, I'll just have to find someone that will. <Sigh> A parrot's work is never done.
