Ever say something to your bird or about your bird that you never thought would else wise cross your lips? And if non-bird people overheard they’d send for the white coats and straightjackets? I’ll start with the two I said only this morning:

“Get your toes out of my coffee!”

“Quit licking my chapstick off. That’s so gross!”

Can relate to the ☕

For me, it's less about what I say, it's how I say it.
I've never been one for excited-speak, but then... birds.

(still primarily reserved to punctuate training breakthroughs)

Sometimes the words are normal, but the context makes them odd...

"yes, I did", as a response to, "did you just catch poop in your hand?".

... although I concede that question would also be unexpected before birds.

To Opie the other day: “Did you really just deliberately shoot poop at me?!”

“Mom? Are these nuts on the counter bird nuts or people nuts?”
“Bird nuts, honey.”

(eerie silence)

“Mom? What happens if people eat bird nuts? Do they grow feathers?”

In his defense, we were talking about the birds needing the healthy fats in nuts to grow nice feathers the other day.

In the last five minutes?

Get your butt off my face, I don't find you sexy.
I'm not dad, don't stick your tongue in my ear! :D
Does that tongue try to investigate nostrils too! Do toes deliberately get wiggled into ears? That’s pretty common here unfortunately lol

We have a lot of “Get out of my arm pit”, “Stop licking the TV”, “Just friends Jenks just friends” and of course there is the “Did he just projectile crap on the wall?” and I have also gotten the “Did you just catch that poop in your hand” at which time the hubby said don’t touch me with that hand again! :rofl::lol:

Goodness no. Other than kisses I don't want them touching my face or ears. I've been around birds too long to trust any of them. ;) Korbel has to be reminded that he is not to touch my ears because Joe lets him touch his. You can stand on me, hang on my hair, play in my lap, chew my fingers and hands but don't touch my face, feet or anything that might hurt more than a bite on the arm. :laugh:

They like me... but if they don't like you they bite me. :laugh:

Yah, I'm not shaking your hand either now... Why would you catch poop? Just... Why? :cautious:

What about the classic:

"Don't hug me I've got a bird sleeping in my hair!"
Ours aren't small enough for that, but I've looked around for Luv Bug before... not realizing she was standing on my head! :dunce: We're just so used to her being there that it feels normal. :roflmao:

I often think one of the girls has bombed me when they actually haven't. Hubby calls me "poopanoid". :rolleyes:

I usually always have a glass of water by my laptop, and I´m forever finding myself saying ¨please don´t bathe in my drink¨... noone listens to me though :shrug: I think I´ve only ever drank the water after once ... that I know of ... :barf:
