Hiring a large featherless assistant makes sense for all kinds of reasons.

But it sure can come with a steep learning curve.

It won’t take but an hour or so before you start to notice they are rather….strange.

Many of the things they do stray so far from common sense no amount of geolocation could bring them back.

It just comes with the territory.

Take the long soft flexible strips they call “towels.”

Even a glimpse of one clearly explains their purpose: they are nest-liners.

With a little help from these handy inventions, a cockatiel ladybird in an egg-laying frame of mind wouldn’t have to do all that hard work of constructing a suitable nest (and you wouldn’t have to endure all that feminine supervision as you build it for her).

Just wind the “towel” around a few times and voila – you have a comfy, cozy structure that is perfect for eggs and soft ladybird underfluffies to rest on.

But no. It would seem it is not to be. Because your large featherless assistant insists on wrapping these treasures around her own self instead.

Clearly, the assistant retraining process is going to take some time.

It is clearly going to take some significant investment of time (and patience) to retrain your large featherless assistant in the proper application of the soft comfy strips she calls “towels.”
