STOP THE MADNESS
oh Mom, how could you? after all the talk lately about roosters and knowing that i'm scared of 'em, how, oh how, could you go out today and buy A WHOLE BOX OF THEM????? A WHOLE BOX OF ROOSTERS!!!! do you hate me that much, Mom? here, all this time i thought you loved me, i thought i was your special boy......and now i find out that you have done this. where will i go?? i obviously can't stay here with a WHOLE BOX OF ROOSTERS!!!
what? you didn't buy a box of roosters?? well, i know i heard you talking about it.....what??? oh. you bought a roosting box. well, i guess that's different. ummm. Mom? what's a roosting box? .........oh, really?? oh my! i had no idea!
well! my Mom read an article in the paper today about birds in winter. it said that the little birds try to eat all day when it's cold so they have enough energy to shiver all night, and that's what keeps 'em warm enough so they don't freeze. but, but, if it's below freezin' for a few days in a row, they just can't stay warm enough and lots and lots of 'em die. and that with a lot of trees bein' cut down and stuff, there aren't holes for them to roost in. but, nice people (my Mom!) can put up roosting boxes. they have little holes and perches and lots an lots of birds fit in and huddle all together and stay warm. what a cool idea!! thanks Mom, for bein' nice! (and i bet the birds will thank you too!!)
