Parrots are great at something called “repurposing.”
They can find all kinds of alternative uses for everyday items.
For instance, let’s say the large featherless being has prepared herself (aka you) a nice dinner of Indian rice.
But there isn’t any plate in sight.
This is totally fine, because you can use your repurposing skills to “make” a plate out of Mom’s legs so you can enjoy your portion.
