Rocky was a lover and a fighter and a chatter box

Rocky was a beautiful bird that my mom had gotten from one her co-workers. When Rocky came home, my dad had built a really cool corner cage in the living room to went floor to ceiling. Even though the previous owner didn't take the time to know whether Rocky was a boy or a girl, we quickly found out that Rocky was a boy. We found out because he hated my dad and most men.

Rocky was definitely a very chatty bird, but his vocabulary wasn't that big yet. He said the traditional "Hello" often and would sit there an mumble like a crazy person. The only other thing he did was that he would laugh and whistle. He whistled to get attention and more importantly, he laughed when he bit you. I thoguht it was hilarious the first time he bit my dad's ear and laughed then ran away like a pesky little boy.

As we had Rocky for several years, he added several words to his vocabulary. His favorite one to use became my name. Every morning my mom walked into the living room and over to the bottom of the stairs and yelled my named to wake up and get ready for school. As Rocky heard that every morning, he picked it up. After she would yell my name, Rocky would sit in his cage and keep repeating my name over and over and over again until I came downstairs. The funny thing is it got to the point all my mom had to do was walk into living room in the morning and Rocky would jsut start yelling my name. That goofy bird was my alarm clock all through high school.
