RIP Little Bird

*cue tweeting noises*
Allie: *chomp*

*cue silence*
Allie:  *pat-pat-pat* ... hullo in there?

*brings bird to ear to listen*
*more silence*
Faraday: Allie! You broke it!


Allie: I did no such thing. This bird is obviously defective.

(Girlie, it's broken. No tweets remain. Even The Physicist can't fix it.)

Faraday: You're taking that out of her allowance, right?

.... right, Mommy?

The Mom: Well, it was nice while it lasted.

(Don't tell them The Physicist is suspected of sabotage. That thing tweeted. A lot.)

Wanna know a secret?

Allie:  ... No.

(Dood, we'd let it ride. She doesn't look terribly patient right now....)

May your BirdTV be extra special today!

And may you (finally) catch that elusive Red Dot...

Care to join me?

Just hangin' out on the deck.

Allie: Hmmm, delicious is more like it, Mother.
The Mom: Delicious? I don't think magnolia blossoms are edib— Oh.

The Mom: I see we're looking at two different things, aren't we.
Allie: Always, Mother. Always.

The Bird: *gulp*  Niiiiice kitty....

Tech Cat Woes

Maxwell: Hey, is this one of those new touch on/off faucets?

Maxwell: Huh. Guess not. 
Bummer, dood. (Not really. We all just heaved a huge sigh of relief, actually....)
