What’s Important in Life !!
The story is told of a woman who bought a parrot to keep her company, but she returned it the next day, “This bird does not talk,” she told the owner. “Does it have a mirror in its cage?” he asked. “Parrots love mirrors. They see their reflection and start a conversation.” The woman bought a mirror and left.
The next day she returned. The bird still wasn’t talking. “How about a ladder? Parrots love ladders.” The woman bought a ladder and left. But the next day, she was back. “Does your parrot have a swing? No? Well, that is the problem. Once it starts swinging, it will talk up a storm.” The woman reluctantly bought a swing and left.
When she walked into the store the next day, her countenance had changed, “The parrot died,” she said.
The pet store owner was shocked, “I am sorry. Tell me, did it ever say anything before it died?” “Yes,” said the woman.
“In a weak voice, it asked me, ‘Don’t they sell any food at that pet store?’”
Sometimes we forget what is really important in life.
