You Know You Are A Budgie Nut When.....


Recommended Posts

134. When shopping for a new house there's only one thing that matters; will the aviaries fit in the yard?

 

135. When you run out of microwave containers because they all somehow found themselves in the aviaries full of seed (boy did I get into trouble for this).

 

136. When emailing another budgie nut who's attached overseas you spend 5 paragraphs describing every minute detail of the past budgie month and finish the email with, "So, how are you doing".

 

137. When friends visit you announce that, "There will be an aviary tour departing in the next 15 minutes but places are limited so be quick".

 

138. When you can't sleep the night before a budgie auction because you're too damn excited!

 

139. When taking a sickie your boss signs off the approval form, "Caring for sick budgie.....again".
