When I was 8 I begged for a pet parrot like the one my friend's family had. Instead I got Cricket the parakeet. Probably a smart decision on my parent's part as it turned out I wasn't very good at taking care of birds. He was rather nippy and one day when I was holding him he nipped me and I dropped him off a second story deck. He made it to the ground safely enough with his clipped wings but the neighbor's cat had been lying underneath the deck in the shade and didn't waste any time dispatching my first pet bird ever. :(
