On Fridays, we don't run, so we sleep in a bit later than usual and then have a more peaceful morning. This morning, Thomas got up at 5:30 and I was still in bed. About 10 minutes later, I hear one of the parrots thrashing about their cage. It was Max, having a night fright. Thomas went over to make sure she was OK, and then I heard him say something like, "I guess you can come out since you're up anyway." The parrots are supposed to sleep until 7 so they get 12 hours of sleep.
Guess what happened next?
That's right -- Stella had a "night fright." And yes, I am putting that in quotes as I suspect it was faked as she saw that it worked for Max. Thomas thought the same, as I hear him say to her, "I probably shouldn't reward you for this, but if you want to come out so badly..."
I told him this better not have started a trend as they could injure themselves by having "night frights" frequently. Yet again, these greys are too smart for their own good.
