X Is For Xcited

It really does makes nice sounds... watch this video and see!


But I am eager, no Xcited to share with you something funny. At least, to me it was.
Meet the parrot.
Not sure what his/her name is, and at that moment it didn't matter. 
Was visiting Ruffins pet store a while back. I always wander around looking at the birds, fish and whatever animals they have there. As I hit the bird aisle, this parrot starting going ape-shit! And I mean total ape-shit! It was like he/she was squawking at me to set him/her free. He/She had this high-pitched screech and though you would think I would be bothered, I became quite enamored.
The longer I stood in front of his/her cage, letting him/her have their childish fit, the more he/she gradually calmed down. All it took was a stare-down.
Now, I know I have a thing for birds, but is this a new thing to be a bird whisperer??? 
Move over Caesar. There's a new whisperer in town.

Have you had any experiences visiting the pet store that stand out?

  1. I rarely go to the pet store and I usually just pick up fish food and get the fishes, so no funny experiences.

  7. I once went to a pet store just to have some fun looking around and went home with a parakeet. I named him Pancho, and we had some good times together.
