Wink You know you're a Parront when...

you are sitting in the restaurant and you look at the SS bread basket and think..."That will make an excellent foraging toy!"

It happened tonight. My husband rolled his eyes. I couldn't fit it in my purse!

Re: You know you're a Parront when...

When you are overhead by a colleague giving a friend cellphone emotional support due to problems she is having trying to potty train her ring neck and the colleague draws the conclusion from the conversation that you were speaking with a patient with post traumatic stress disorder. (It might have been the part where I was encouraging slow deep breaths....)

Re: You know you're a Parront when...

Or when you're with a bunch of older family members at a wedding party, and you all are sharing wallet pictures of your family. Pop out your wallet, and tell them about my kids. The look on their faces when I say that before I show them the pictures of the birds. Priceless.

And once, I was home alone, on the phone with my mom, and the birds are screaming. Mom goes, "What in sam's heck is going on over there?" My reponse: "The fire department's here." Her reaction is absolutely hilarious.

Re: You know you're a Parront when...

Or when the only time you can really really talk about parrots is on the parrot forum because no one else understands terms like "fid", "GCC", "CAG", etc...

Re: You know you're a Parront when...

Or when you tell people that your "Bird Brained" and they have that puzzled look on their face when you tell them "but hey thats a good thing!"

Re: You know you're a Parront when...

When you're wondering if social services is going to show up at your house because you told the doctor you were anxious to get home, that you didn't want to leave your new baby alone too long, and didn't realize until hours later that you never mentioned it was a bird.

Re: You know you're a Parront when...

Also, at school, I have done this a few times. I'd forget to do a homework assignment. My teacher asks why I didn't do it. My excuse: My parrots shredded it.

Been there...done that AP.
When you ask your parents to buy spinach at the shops and they stare at you like you're crazy ( coming from a 12 y.o ) because you hate spinach.
