It’s that thankful time of year, with Thanksgiving coming up soon. This year I am thankful that I am a bird, and not just any kind of bird, but a beautiful squawky parrot.
I am thankful that am NOT:
• a turkey, which is a very dangerous sort of bird to be in November
• a dumb robin, so that I don’t have to migrate twice a year but can relax in the comfort of my own cage
• a chickadee, which is a very nice sort of bird but has to spend all winter outside in the cold and snow
• a catbird, because who wants to be named after a predator
I AM thankful that I am a beautiful parrot with pretty green feathers and a melodious squawk!
