Thwarted Beeps attack

I recently subscribed to Paste Magazine, which includes a CD of new music in the magazine. I got my first issue yesterday and couldn't wait to listen. As soon as the first song came on, "Why Can't It Be Christmastime All Year" by Rosie Thomas, Rocky and Max started dancing. (Beware: the song is very addicting; I can't stop listening to it! And if you click on the Rosie Thomas link, it will play in the background!)

When Thomas came home from work, I wanted to show him the parrots' reaction, so put the song back on. The beat moved him as well, and pretty soon Rocky, Max, and Thomas were all dancing.

Regular readers may recall that Beeps does not like dancing. He's like the mayor from the tiny town in Footloose. Thomas decided to take the risk and dance anyway. With predictable results.

Just as I give Thomas the warning that Beeps is attacking, he ducks down and Beeps circles back to a stand. They must have done this about 10 times last night. If nothing else, I guess Beeps got some exercise.

When we want to dance without worrying about getting bit, we have to make sure Beeps is locked in his cage.

hahahaha, the mayor from footloose. Thanks for that video, visuals are always more fun!

Doodlebird -- I'm glad you enjoyed it. It's really an apt description. Even when not hormonal, he doesn't like dancing, unless he's the one doing it.

Unfortunately, his hormones are still going strong, so I may have the opportunity for more videos in the near future :(
