... who's that cockatoo? ...

... this story is a synergy of sartorial synchronicity, since, despite the occasion, I might have actually stayed at home if there wasn't something fly to wear ...

... I was leaning toward all-black default safety when my one-of-a-kind Mark Collins tailored shirt squawked audibly, "wear me!"...

- beautiful, intelligent showoffs - can live over 70 years
- brains need stimulation on a daily basis
- social, affectionate ... thrive on being handled, loved and petted
- expect a lot of physical and emotional attention
- curious and, if allowed, will learn to manipulate you
