    I have the feeling this is going to devolve into imagery that I don't want in my head!

    I'm surprised he didn't ask that the person would play Jimmy Buffet songs all day long.

    I'd be all over that, except I only play oboe.

    "Parrots are not a pet nor are they domesticated. They live in captivity against their driven needs."

    If so, then why the heck do you have parrots??
     
  8. I would take the position and then teach the parrots nothing but curse words! That should teach the jag off who wants me to babysit their friggin' parrots for free!

    I had a job as a teenager taking care of parrots and other tropical birds (cockateels and lady finches). It was not work to be done for free! got paid quite well, the family even took me to Ireland for a couple of months where I blossomed into drunken debauchery of course, given the lax attitude toward teen drinking there, and the hot teenage chicks.

    ...

    So flute has nothing to do with it, really? This is just wild.

    Great, parrots that bite and curses as well... Should teach them to like single malt scotch at the same time and when he will come home, he will have hanged over, biting and cursing parrots.... :roflmao:

    Wasn't it Andrew Jackson's parrot that had to be removed from his funeral because it would not stop swearing?

    Well, I can't play flute, but I do love parrots, fried or broiled

    Well as tempting as it sounds being bitten by a parrot while trying to practice flute, I'll have to pass as Hartford is just a wee bit too far from Houston.
