This Has Been My Day So Far

LIAM enters the kitchen, clutching the little Fisher-Price parrot from the pirate ship he received as a Christmas gift from his GRANDPARENTS. MAMA is assembling his lunch to take to daycare.

MAMA: Hey, Liam, you’ve got your parrot. What does a parrot say?

LIAM: Arrrr!

Parrot, pirate; you say orphan, I say often….

    What *does* a parrot say?


    “Shiver me timbers!”

    “Pieces of eight!”

    “Arr, ye lubbers!”

    “Polly want a cracker!”

    So many possibilities. No wonder Liam chose to go the easier route. ;)

    I actually got him to feed part of his cracker to it yesterday, thereby fulfilling the stereotype.

    I like “pieces of eight” myself. Might be a bit beyond him at the moment, though. Honestly, I expected him to say “awk, awk” like he says for crows.
