I still remember my grandfather’s old parrot, a red and blue bird called a Crimson Rosella. It was the most gorgeous little animal I’d ever seen up close. As soon as anyone got near it though, it chirped and squawked enough to make you hate it. We laughed to no end speculating that it was deeply in love with him. There was no appeasing or comforting it, my grandfather alone had the gift for this and it was a gift he couldn’t pass along to anyone no matter how hard he tried. When his wife passed away he tried his hand half-heartedly at a few new dalliances with romance. They were all short lived though, no women could get between him and that horrible bird. When he died, he left that bird to me, of all people, in his will. I took it in its little cage and drove it out to a pet store on the outskirts of town, left the cage at the front door and got back in my car, driving all the way home without a second thought. Winged creatures are perhaps the most potent concentration of trouble aside from viruses and uranium. [Ryan Nimmo]
