But she almost got me into trouble once. There was a workman in the house and she's a wee bit of a trollop, she loves men and she's a terrible flirt. A tart with a heart....

So the man's there working with his back to both me and the birds and then, cracking through the absolute silence is the biggest, wettest, fattest kissing sound you've ever heard. No one moved. Slowly, the chap turns around and gives me that *uh oh, what kind of nut have I got here?* look. Mortified doesn't begin to cover it (as well as being almost paralytic trying not to just roll about the floor laughing). Just then, she does it again but this time adds "Love you" and a saucy wink. I've never seen a jaw drop that far that fast. Deadpan, I explained the parrot was a bit of a floozy.

LOL... that's hilarious! I read a news story once about a parrot who made a crying baby sound, and their neighbors called the police when they thought it (a baby) had been left home for hours. Boy were they surprised to find a parrot alone in the house.

I can't remember if it was a novel I read or where I read it... but the yarn's good anyway. Police were in court defending the legality of a search because when they knocked, they were told "Come in!". Of course it turned out just to be the parrot. (I have a feeling it's an old Ed McBain.)

Ok, I admit it - I know where the wine sound comes from. But she really did come to us already knowing how to do great big rip-roaring fart noises. Truth, whole truth and nothing but the truth.

So with the workman... it was probably a choice. Would I rather have him think I was blowing him a kiss, or that I just let rip the loudest, most vile sounding fart he'd ever heard?
