The Pink Incident
Are you ready? Then let us begin.
One day, not so long ago, Janie decided that as I loved Pomegranate (Pom Poms) so much, she would buy me a whole fruit, instead of the usual seeds in a tub she buys from the supermarket. She carefully, yes knives can be sharp boys and girls - not a sharp as my beak - but that is a different story, cut the fruit in half, stuck half on one of my fruit hanging skewers and hung the fruit in my cage.
She then, wheeled my cage into the front room, as she was going to do something or other on the computer, and proceeded to leave me to it.
I ate my Pom Pom.
Janie sat at her computer.
I ate my Pom Pom some more.
Janie sat on her computer some more.
Repeat until bored.....
Finally the Pom Pom half was gone and Janie got up to check on me... the photo above is a recreation of what she found. Or as she said after, 'The Crime Scene'.
The curtains were covered in Pom Pom pink, the net curtains were covered, the wall was pink, the paintwork was pink, so was the radiator, the fish tank, my whole cage and even the window itself. I had done a good job of spreading Pom Pom around.
Janie quickly moved my cage and got down the curtains and the nets to wash them before they stained, she cleaned the windows and washed down the paintwork and the radiator... I have never seen her work so hard...
All the time she kept saying... 'Oh Darwin!!!' As if it was my fault!!!!! Was I the one who gave me the Pom Pom in the first place???
Oh yes the moral of the story...
Never give Pom Pom fruit to Darwin's inside the house.
I think by the look of Janie's face it is a moral she will never forget.
Until next time,
Nibbles Darwin xx
