Hand Over the Remote

If Pearl had to choose a favorite electronic device, it would be my MacBook Pro, hands down.

Recently, however, a new contender has risen to the challenge.

Which just offers more proof that in any species, the males simply MUST have command of the remote.

Hmmm. I find this very interesting. That must mean it is mine.
Yes. Clearly mine. Plus, I like the colors – although I would have gone for grey over black.
And it has delicious springy keys. If I position my beak just so….
Very comfy for the feet too. High end ergonomic, I’d say.
Uh oh. A poacher approaches. MY remote. All MINE.

  1. I have two cockatiels (one is named Mango, hence my user name) and they absolutely destroyed my last remote. So many buttons were bitten off and gone. Then I moved into the apartment I live in now and had to have the cable guy over again to set everything up. When I gave him my remote he was like, “What the hell happened to this?!” I told him it was the birds, which then got me talking about my birds (seriously don’t do that. I’m worse than people with kids) and then I opened my laptop and said, “here is a picture of them!” Which I had as my screensaver. He looked, just being polite because most people don’t understand how amazing birds are. Then I cheerfully said, “Yeah, I had to get a new mouse a while back because they killed that too.” He looked very startled and said, “What?!” I repeated myself and then he said, “You fed them a mouse?!” LOL I said, “Nooooo, they killed my corded mouse for the computer. I had to get a cordless one.” He was relieved and said, “Well I thought maybe from the picture…” Mango is a lutino mutation and is pale yellow. Her eyes are red, which you can’t really tell in person but always shows up in pictures. So he saw her picture with crazy devil-bird red eyes and then I told him they killed a mouse. He really thought I had violent birds over here. They’re only violent to a stick of millet. Oh and rice. They really love rice. 😉

    1. OMG…killed a ‘mouse.’ That is hilarious! My bird just killed a mound of couscous….he also enjoys dismantling rice noodles, anything wicker and anything off-limits. LOVE that you can’t resist talking about the kiddos…me neither!

  2. Like the story! Mine prefer the cordless phone and the phone/fax.

    1. Haha! Mine can’t get to either of those options….I have hidden them in the closet. But during the rare moments when Mommy doesn’t keep hold of the iphone that is fair game, that’s for sure! 😉
