New Phrase

This little New Jersey parrot or should I call him a little New Jersey Devil (a regional mythical character) spouted a new phrase yesterday. Some of the things he says can’t quite be understood just because of the way he says them. This was as clear as a bell. I thought I’d heard his entire repertoire. How wrong was I?

His cool new phrase —“C’mon baby”. Yeah, it’s nothing spectacular but as I said  before “I thought I heard it all”. Nearly knocked my socks off. Better wash my ears out so I can hear his conversation clearly. New words may be on the horizon. Maybe. Who knows?

I’m still trying to have him repeat “birds just wanna have fun”.
