Miz Quickly’s Day 15: About That Bird

About That Bird: Day 15 with a Parrot Named Suky Tawdry

Falsely Positive

His parrot has ordered
a Covid test.

It’s sick
of all this negativity

and wants to try being
positive.

  3. Well written Misky. Parrots are cute but I always feels so sorry for them when I see them cooped up in those little cages. 😒

    1. Rest easy. This is one bird, Suki Tawdry, who writes her own space (and script)! I’ve been working on Suki for a year now, and I’d never put her anywhere she didn’t want to be.

  4. This is really fun, so clever! I’ve never had a parrot, but from what I hear they can be very negative when they choose to be.
