Like my disguise?

•••Please Do Not Tell Mom, I think you call her Allee! She can never, ever know•••I'm invisible to Mom if I stay in The Game Room----For Now---I hope!•••

Hey, Gang! I have missed you so much! I heard we have lots of new feathered forum members, can't wait to visit with you all! Help me catch up with forum news!

So this is the thing, ummm, I'm all grown up now so I'm more reasonable and mature than I was, say, last month. My mom is all about positive reinforcement, positive solutions, positive thoughts, blah, blah, blah.

The best ideas take lots of planning, a little conspiracy, a little help from your friends, a gift, a couple of borrowed items, fine then, stolen items! Mom says I need to entertain myself, I need to consider my housemates, I need to help out more. So this is what I've done to impress her.

Studied and researched alone late into the night! A lot of nights. Helped with housework!



Got a present from Dad for my eleventieth hatch day! He used all the parront controls though, so it's only really good for documentaries. I had to fix that.



Then I got an idea! The hardest part was gathering my flock. We had some minor loyalty issues at first! Especially from Harry. She kept saying it was a really bad idea!



Sammy wasn't on board at first.

No way, Pops! You're usually cool but your idea is just nuts! I'm not helping! Leave me alone!



Oh yes you will, Sam! You need stuff! If you do what I say, I'll get things for you! Now get the twins and bring Sweet Pea! Right now! Flock meeting!



Sammy: Fine, Ms. Bossypants! Come on Sweet Pea, Poppy wants to talk to us about some stuff!

No, no, no, Sammy! I'm not supposed to leave my room after lights out. I'm afraid. I need my night light, it's dark out there.



Sammy: Sweet Pea! Are you gonna' be a girl all your life? Clean yourself up! You look like a baby!

Hey, hey, hey! Sammy, shut your beak, you bully! You'll make Sweet Pea cry, she's sensitive, leave her alone! I'll bring her myself! Tell Poppypants to keep her feathers on. The twins are fine where they are. If they come out, they'll be scared and wake up Shelby, she'll have a yapping fit and wake up Cameron, it'll be anarchy!



The twins being fine where they were.

Poppy: Quakers! Pipe down! I'm working with Gypsy! Phweeet! Phweeet! C'mere! C'mon Girl, little help!



Relax! Keep your Sneaky Snake! What I really need is Mom's phone! You can slide it under the seed guard and over the grate! Easy peasy! You can do it!



Gypsy, c'mon, you're killin' me here! Try again, please! Nice rope but slobber will make me sick! Phone! I need Mom's phone! Before morning! Can you pay attention? It's not easy for me to keep whispering!



That's it! Good Girl! Little closer! I'll get you a nutri-berry! And your favorite pellets! And my evil monkey! I love you, Gypsy! Kiss kiss! Don't get excited, just air kisses.

Sammy: Gypsy, you are a good, good Burrrrd! I wanna help now, I can build something, anything, an amphitheater, a mega mall, say the word I'll build it!



Sammy! Hey! Knock it off! Be silent! Poppy what is that and why did you take your guitar down? Hey that's me? How did you do that?





I know, right? I am amazing! I uploaded mom's photos to my computer. Here's a question, Harry. Why do you call Mom Cameron? Never mind, I don't need to know. Come closer, you won't believe what else I did.

And then, a few nights later at our last flock meeting.

Same computer, same flock, different night after numerous flock meetings, bickering, fluffed feathers, hacking and identity theft.



Here we are! We have one chance! What's your dream toys? I ordered for me and the twins already.

Yayyy toys! I want lots of toys! I love toys, oh boy, oh boy!



Bells, more bells! Lots and lots of bells!



Yo, Popsickle! I don't wanna pee on your parade but maybe you should think about this. Mom said we can't have ex-trava-gun toys for a while. Sparkle has to see the vet a lot now. Her meds and food costs a lot and that's more important than toys.



Gypsy, stop fussing. She'll never know. She orders all our stuff, when it gets here she'll think she ordered it.



Harry: Hello? Flash, Cameron will probably get a clue when a box of toys arrives and there's no pellets, no supplies, just toys and an outrageous bill.

You worry too much. We're good! We'll be like the cool kids. I'm tired of homemade toys. I'm tired of being good, I'm tired of being quiet. Lighten up! Live a little.



Harry: Poppy, when Cameron finds out what you did she will send you straight to Altairs 4 or to Alphatraz Parrot Prison or maybe even back in time. I'm not even kidding! You know what? I'm done! There's no reasoning with a cockatoo. I'm going to my room to forget this ever happened! You'll be sorry you ever hatched.



Cammmmrunnnn!!!

To be continued-possibly from a cell at Alphatraz.

Oh Poppy, you are going to be in sooo much trouble when Mommy figures out what you did! For now it will be our secret:)
You are the best author I know, Sweet Poppy, and I can't wait to see Cameron's face when your loot arrives:)

Poppy, you and your accomplices are always welcome in the Game Room! It's so boring in here with just humans! Remember, the Game Room was designed to be an addition to the regular PARROT Forums, so having you here helps us ground ourselves to reality!

Like my new sombrero? It would be better if it fit, it keeps falling off.

Hey, Gang! I have missed you so much! I heard we have lots of new feathered forum members, can't wait to visit with you all! Help me catch up with forum news!

So this is the thing, ummm, I'm all grown up now so I'm more reasonable and mature than I was, say, last month. My mom is all about positive reinforcement, positive solutions, positive thoughts. My mom is awesome. Love my mom. Have to run, I have a curfew. I am a good girl.

Poppy, you and your accomplices are always welcome in the Game Room! It's so boring in here with just humans! Remember, the Game Room was designed to be an addition to the regular PARROT Forums, so having you here helps us ground ourselves to reality!

Scott, thank you for welcoming Poppy into the game room, I thought it would be fine if she just said a quick hello. I gave her permission. Accomplices???

:eek:Uh oh Poppy, I think your Mom has seen your posts!

Terry, Poppy showed me her post. I thought it was sweet? Am I missing something?

Nope, you didn't miss a thing..I am sure you ordered all those toys that are on the way:)
And you are so good at picking them out, it will be like they picked them out themselves!

Nope! No toys! Not in the budget this month. The flock has lots of toys, they'll have to be satisfied.

Poppy, you are going to need that sombrero if your mom gives you a time-out outside under the hot Texas sun!

How about Harry as an accomplice to spice up the Game Room language? :D

Because they have wings, and unlike us are mobile in three dimensions!

Ahhh, thanks for clearing that up! :) So, the conclusion is, everything we own really does belong to them including our privacy and personal space.

Um, wait.... There is privacy AND personal space!!???!! Do I need to order some or, does it just happen one day? Clue me in y'all on this privacy thing!! It never happens here! Critters in the kitchen, birds in the bedroom, puppies in the powder room, cats on the couch, and probably bats in the belfry!! No privacy anywhere! :confused:;):p:09:
