THIS IS THE EXACT REACTION. THIS IS SO PERFECT.
Gussie really wanted to help me with the spinach tart. Really really.
hanhar-thegreat said: I'd like to request permission for my Quaker Parrot, Baby, to join the Birthday Unending. She died just a few days ago at the age of 14 due to what the vet thinks was a combination of stress and an undiagnosed heart condition. She enjoys any food, especially spaghetti. She speaks fluently and would probably get along with anyone. I'm sending her along with a few bird toys, so other birds at the Birthday Unending may enjoy them too. We miss her so much, and our house feels so empty. Thank you.
WE THANK YOU FOR SHOWING HER THE WAY.
HELLO, BABY. WE WOULD ASK YOU WHO WAS A GOOD BIRD, BUT WE ARE SURE THAT YOU ALREADY KNOW, EVEN AS WE ARE SURE THAT YOU ARE SORRY TO HAVE COME HERE SO SOON, SO FAR AHEAD OF WHEN YOU EXPECTED TO FLY INTO THE BLACK THAT COMES AT THE END OF THE BLUE. WELCOME, WELCOME, WELCOME BABY, AND KNOW THAT YOU HAVE DONE NOTHING WRONG; YOU HAVE ONLY COME HOME, AS ALL THINGS WHICH BREATHE MUST ONE DAY DO. YOUR PERSON WILL BE HERE TO SEE YOU FROM TIME TO TIME. YOU HAVE NOT LEFT THEM ALONE. YOUR MEMORY WILL WRAP ITS WINGS AROUND THEM, AND HOLD THEM SO SAFE, AND SO CLOSE.
BUT WHERE ARE OUR MANNERS. COME, AND ENTER, AND BE HOME.
HERE IS YOUR PERCH AT THE TABLE. HERE IS YOUR CONICAL HAT. HERE IS YOUR PLATE OF SPAGHETTI, IN ALL DIFFERENT TYPES, PESTO AND WHEAT AND TOMATO AND SQUID INK, AND YOU SHALL HAVE AS MUCH AS YOU DESIRE, ALWAYS.
FLY WHERE YOU WILL. YOU ARE WELCOME WHEREVER YOU DESIRE.
WELCOME TO THE BIRTHDAY. WELCOME TO THE BIRTHDAY. WELCOME TO THE BIRTHDAY UNENDING.
I adore all the Birthday Unending posts but the ones that break your heart into a million tiny pieces & make you cry at work are the best.
This is God’s truth. Tell it like it is!
