A PARROT THAT DOESN”T TALK.

A PSYCHOANALYST WENT TO A PET SHOP AND ASKED FOR A PARROT THAT WOULD NOT TALK.

THE SHOP OWNER THOUGHT QUICKLY.HE WENT TO THE BACK, AND BROUGHT BACK A PIGEON PERCHED ON HIS ELBOW.THE PSYCHOANALYST ASKED DOUBTFULLY, “IS THIS A PARROT?”

“YES,”SAID THE SHOP OWNER, “IT IS A SOUTH AFRICAN PARROT.SOUTH AFRICAN PARROTS CAN NOT TALK, BECAUSE THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND ENGLISH.”

“THAT MAKES SENSE,” SAID THE PSYCHOANALYST, HE PAID THE MONEY FOR THE PIGEON AND TOOK IT HOME.

A MONTH LATER THE PET SHOP OWNER MET THE PSYCHOANALYST WHEN BOTH WERE OUT FOR A STROLL.

“HOW ARE THINGS GOING?” HE ASKED THE PSYCHOANALYST. “HOW IS THE PARROT?”

THE PSYCHOANALYST SAID, “YOU HAVE GIVEN ME REALLY AN EXCELLENT PARROT.HE NEVER SAYS A SINGLE WORD.WHATEVER I SAY HE LISTENS SO ATTENTIVELY AND EVEN SAYS, “Oooooooooooooo!”I TALK TO HIM HOURS AND HOURS ON END.I AM FEELING SO LIGHT AND UNBURDENED LATELY.I CAN”T WAIT TO FINISH WORK AND GO HOME IN THE EVENING SO THAT I CAN TALK TO HIM.

“MANY PEOPLE HAVE SAID TO ME, ‘YOU ARE A FOOL, THAT IS NOT A SOUTH AFRICAN PARROT.THAT IS A DOVE”. BUT I DON”T CARE. I DON”T CARE IF HE IS A PARROT OR NOT. HE PAYS ATTENTION, HE LISTENS TO ME ATTENTIVELY.AND THAT IS WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR.”
