You know that funny meme that I can’t find right now about the bird that wakes up and thinks ‘what a beautiful day — you know what would make it even better? SCREAMING’
Not only is that a perfect description of my own personal feelings about today, it also matches what the actual birds outside my window are doing!
IT IS A DAY FOR SCREAMING. BRING IT ON.
[Note: This led to a fascinating google thread about why parrots scream, and — if one is to extrapolate to one’s own self — I should follow this simple advice: 1) give myself rewards when I’m not screaming; 2) make sure to touch base frequently with my flock so I know they haven’t gone off without me; 3) identify frightening things in my environment and deal with them as needed; 4) if all else fails, cover myself with a blanket and go back to sleep.]
VERY GOOD ADVICE, THANK YOU INTERNET!
