You know how you get something in your head and you just can't stop thinking about it? If you're a parrot, you know exactly what I'm talking about. For me these days it's the desk drawer. I always keep one eye alert for any movement my person makes in the direction of that drawer. Then when she puts her hand on it to pull it open, I'm right there, ready to pounce on the drawer's delicious contents -- paper clips, pens, and tape measure. It's so much fun to toss those things around. I know it makes my person mad when I do that, but I just can't help myself. If the drawer's been closed for a while, I reach down and pull on the handle. I pull and pull, listening to the creaking noise it makes and waiting for my person to take the hint and open the drawer. If she doesn't get it, then pretty soon I have to start squawking. It's really hard just sitting there in front of a closed drawer knowing what delicious treats are waiting for me inside, if only my person would hurry up and OPEN THE DRAWER already!
