In Response to RE: Sunday Dinner With The Preacher by foxieblue
I love the part about the cat. It reminds me of a parakeet we had for a while. It wasn't the minister, but the insurance salesman who came to try to sell Daddy more life insurance.
Tweety loved to get attention and we never kept him in his cage. When the salesman began to lay out all his literature, this little yellow bird flew over and landed right in the middle of it. The salesman didn't seem to notice and just continued with his sales pitch. Then he flew over to the man's arm and proceeded to do a little dance on his forearm.
Everybody in the room was watching the bird but the salesman continued with his spiel. Tweety walked on up the arm to the shoulder and when he still got no response he began to "talk", not in words but we all knew what he was saying in "parakeet". Still getting no response, he reached up with that crooked bill and tried to pierce his ear.
We all just about rolled on the floor laughing. The salesman didn't think it was funny as he gathered up his materials and left while we were still laughing.
