My Old Friend Couldn’t Survive My Girlfriend

My girlfriend killed my pet bird. I went out of town and left the bird with her and specific instructions on how to take care of it, but she didn’t follow the instructions and the bird died. I got a new bird as a pet, but I didn’t get the same kind, because I want to be grief stricken every time I looked at the new bird. I learned more about other birds that would make a good pet at and chose a parrot to be my new pet. Although my girlfriend said she was sorry about killing my old pet bird, I told her that I wouldn’t be leaving my bird with her the next time I went out of town.

The new pet bird is a bit more lively than the previous one. The old bird would mostly stay silent except in rare occasions, but this new one doesn’t mind letting itself be heard. This one likes to sing and it can even say phrases. Sometimes I wonder if the bird actually understands what I’m saying, or if it’s just repeating things that it has heard. Either way, it’s pretty impressive that the bird can even talk at all. I even taught the bird to do a knock knock joke routine with me, and other people laugh hysterically when they hear it.

Even though I’ve moved onto my new pet, sometimes I still think about the bird that I used to have. My girlfriend still feels bad about killing the old one. She doesn’t want to go anywhere near the bird because she’s afraid something will happen. The only reason the old bird died was because my girlfriend fed the bird something that it shouldn’t have eaten. As long as she doesn’t feed it anything other than its food, the bird should be fine.
