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.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
