Actually, I did get a little mad at her recently. I found out that she kept some of Ollie’s toys and gave them to Chloe! She said I have plenty of toys and Chloe really needed more. She also pointed out that I got all of the chew kabobs and frankly, my destruction of those items made her fear that I would destroy the other toys too fast as well. Chloe is more modest with her toys and doesn’t go through them as quickly as I do. At first I cried foul, but really it does make sense. I can turn a toy to toothpicks, sometimes in a matter of hours. And I do have more than she does. So it’s ok. I can be generous. My sister needs them. And I got a pretty sweet deal with those kabobs.
Of course, I think it freaked Chloe out a little. Mommy had to reassure her that Ollie would be ok with her playing with his toys a lot before Chloe would go near them. I think she feared a budgie ghost would come after her! Oh, please. Mommy wears her grandmommy’s jewelry a lot, and we also have furniture from her grandparents and daddy’s grandparents. They doesn’t seem possessed or haunted or anything. Ok, Mommy has her weird moments, but I’m pretty sure that’s a combination of being a writer and too many sci-fi and fantasy books and movies. Maybe they’ll find a name for that problem some day. Or not.
Really, they’re toys that the parronts got Ollie for Christmas, or while he was sick and didn’t play with them. All of the toys Chloe got from Ollie’s stash have been in mint condition – right from the store or Santa’s workshop new! Chloe got a good deal, if you ask me. The only raw part of it is that it’s taken nearly 6 weeks for the parronts to put them up. Good grief, humans and their complex emotions. We miss Ollie too, but toys are toys and they aren’t gonna make us grieve! It would give me a headache, if I got headaches. But I don’t, because I’m a bird, and I’m happy. I may be the happiest bird in the world. Mommy says I am.
That’s all today. Take care, and have a great rest of the week.
