I have three kids. I sure as heck don't need a bird mimicking everything I say too. I liked the video tho. Reminded me why I don't need a house bird. We have chickens that get out of their pin and wake us up every morning making a fuss on the porch.
Think about it. Do you ever want to be in the position of explaining to your visiting pastor about your bird that keeps yelling "YES! YES! HARDER! OMIGOD!"
Yeah. I'll pass on the feathered recording system....
BTDT! Needless to say, the cage got moved after the ex-wife figured out just what he was mimicing.
Mine also used to mimic the sounds of snoring, and the sound of my truck during cold starts. our old neighbor had a female that would mimic the sound of their wrecker and flat beds backing in. At almost the same volume.
If I have to explain why I ride, you wouldn't understand. Explaining sex to an alien would be easier than explaining the feeling, one that boils all that is going on in your life down to what really matters each time you are in The Wind. All I can say is, Life is not Life without it.
