Story: The Woman and the Parrot


The story is about a woman who bought a parrot to keep her company, but came back with it the next day

“This bird is not talking,” he told the owner. “Do you have a mirror in his barn?” he asks.
“Parrots love glasses. They see their appearance and start a conversation.”
The woman bought a mirror and left.
The next day he returned; the bird was speechless.
“What about the stairs? Parrots love the stairs.
Happy parrot is a talking parrot. “The woman bought a ladder and left.
But the next day, she was back. “Does your parrot have candy?
No? That is the problem.
As soon as he starts to swing, he will talk to the storm. “
The woman hesitated to buy the swing carelessly and left.
When he entered the store the next day, his face changed.
“The parrot has died,” he said. The owner of the pet store was shocked.
“I’m sorry. Tell me, have you ever said anything?” he asks.


“Yes, just before he died,” the woman replied.
“In a weak voice, he asked me, ‘Don’t they sell food at that pet store?'”

Sometimes we forget the most important things in life.
We get so caught up in the affairs of daily life that we neglect to take care of the needs.

We should give the family a nice house.
And of course, we should have at least two cars.
And to make everyone really happy, we need the latest smart phone.
However, if we are not careful, we could be mistaken in thinking that those (and many other such “things” are things that bring us satisfaction and meaning.
