This was a close call

Times are tough and everyone is looking for cash. Today a job seeker came up to my peep and said I really need a job and I’ll work for cheap”.

The peep said “I may have an opening-my parrot is disappointing me by laying eggs that won’t hatch”. “Can you sit on my shoulder like a parrot?” Sure.

Can you say “SQUAAAAAWK”?”

“pffft” was the best she could do. That was it-my job is safe.

About Kismet

I'm an 9 year old Indian Ringneck parrot curmudgeon in New River, Arizona in the wild west country. If you're a sunflower seed, you're dinner.

  1. Guess you’re lucky it didn’t squawk.

  2. Oh my disgusting! You are some brave peeps!

  3. We know they’re harmless…..but, they still look scary and BIG.

  4. omd omd where is the sal volatile…. my mom swooned as she saw that parrot-stand in…. she always wanted a parrot for her shoulder but this one would be her dead :o)

  5. What????? You are trying to earn your Keep, by supplying your peeps with FRESH EGGS… and they are complaining??? See this is just another example of how CRAZY Peeps are. You couldn’t be replaced by that spider. They were just trying to Fluff your Feathers.. Don’t worry.

    • The spider approached the peeps. I am miffed that the peeps even considered it. They’d get laughed out of the Caribbean on our next pirate adventure. Maybe the tarantula could work for you. No bailiff needed if you want to clear the courtroom-just let the tarantula loose.

  6. I thought that was cool…your keeping your job, and your Peep being kind. Al creatures great and small, Mama sez. My late PawPaw got bitten by a brown recluse…he got very ill & had a terrible scar. Scary are those brown recluse.

  7. Shiver me timbers! That hairy spider needs a makeover. The smaller the spider is, the larger its brain is in proportion to its size ~ Kismet don’t worry that is one stupid spider.

    • The spider said that panhandling on the street corner didn’t work-didn’t collect a cent. At least the spider had the sense to look for another line of work.

  8. I’ll pass on that. Oh yes I will.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  9. Don’t let the bum stay! My brother Max and I fight for attention as it is. You have enough competition in your house. By the way your daddy is very brave!

  10. Nope. No. Uh-uh. You have got to be kidding me!!

  11. A good pirate parrot has a patch on its eye. But what to do when you have eight eyes? No, not good substitute for the BlogBIrd.

  12. REALLY???!!!!!! OMD, you just FREAKED MA OUT!!!!! YOU GOTS TO WARN HER ABOUTS THINGS LIKE THIS!!!!! i THINKS SHE’S GONNA NEED 87 MARGARITAS TO GET OVER THE FRIGHT!!!!
    YES I KNOW I’M ‘YELLING’, BUTTS MA IS YELLING, AND IT’S CONTAGIOUS!!!
    HOLY CRAP!!!!!
    Kisses,
    Ruby ♥
    pees: she says she doesn’t CARE if they don’t bother humans if they leave them alone!!!! Good Lord!!! YUCK! yuck! ewwwwwwwww! where are those margaritas….

  13. That is scary looking!! We are far enough away from you to respect it.

  14. YIKES !!!!!! Pack your bags and MOVE.
    Cheers,
    Ranger’s Mom

  15. is he warm and fuzzy? Looks like he has the fuzzy part down

  16. OH!! I cant believe he let him in!!!

  17. EEK! While I do like tarantulas, I only like them if they’re in a terrarium, not on my body and from a distance!!! I say ruffled feathers are definitely in order on this one. 😉

  18. I think I would be hopping around if that was on me.
