Sometimes, I can bring the family into embarrassing situations. The reason is, that I don't know when to keep quiet. My favorite way to be a nuisance is by giving a tremendously loud roar of laughter when Sophia is on the phone. Several times already she has had to explain to an angry listener that he or she is not being laughed at. At times they don't even believe it when she explains that it is "just" the family parrot that they hear; I sound much too real to them. Ah well, you can't please everybody.
I had a major panic attack! Jan and Sophia continued where they left off yesterday: they took me in the car again, closed the door (gently) and Jan started the car. Boy, was I scared. I tried to fly through the car window, to the back seat and on the front mirror. Finally, I crept under Sophia's arm and stayed there, panting. I hate the car. It messes up all my feathers.
