I was reading the Straits Times today when I stumbled on an article about a parrot that was incredibly smart.
“IT KNEW its colours and shapes, it learnt more than 100 English words, and with its own brand of one-liners, it established itself in TV shows, scientific reports and news articles as perhaps the world’s most famous talking bird.”
Sadly, the parrot passed away just a couple days ago. Alex (the parrot) was 31.
What I found interesting were the final words that the parrot said to its long-time handler on the night before it died:
“You be good, see you tomorrow. I love you.”
I was sitting around thinking about how most of us (who are single) don’t have anyone that would say those same words to us on a regular basis.
Where can I buy one of these parrots?
