Twittering - An Introduction
Hi. My name is Friday. I think it's time for you to hear another view of life... and the dog is outside for a quick poop before bed. Oh, I know that, being a bird, I should be long since asleep by this time, but someone left the lights on in here so I am wide awake and thought I'd introduce myself and tell you a bit about myself.
I am a Pacific Parrotlet. Parrotlets are usually under 5 inches long and weigh around 30 grams or less. I am no exception to this. We used to be bigger, and our Amazon cousins still are big... but you see, once upon a time a very long time ago, some on our ancestors got into doing weight loss supplements and they over did it somewhat. Now we are this tiny... but we still have all the BIG birdinality that our family ever had. In fact, we are often referred to as "the tiny parrot with the big personality" or " big personalities in tiny packages" and other such silly names.
Parrotlets make good pets, especially if you have just one of us. We bond real good to our people if they treat us good and with love. We tend to be very protective of our homes and bite if you put your hand into our cage, then we are nice & friendly once we are out of the cage.
People now days are all excited about Twitter... well, I'm telling you, we birds started Twitter literally centuries ago. Nothing new there!! Just took humans a long time to catch on, and now they're all atwitter about it. Go figure.
I just about fell off the computer as I fell asleep. Think I'd better fly now. See you later.
