Say hello to Alex, parrot extraordinary. He lives in Santa Monica, California with a woman named Suki and whoever else happens to be living in the house. Alex is amazingly smart. When Cherokee, the german sheppard, passed away, Alex sang “Over the Rainbow.” When Steve who lived in the house sat down to a dinner with a new date, Alex asked him where Sharon, his ex-girlfriend was!
He has been known to make wise cracks. Sarah, Suki’s friend, thought that she was having a private conversation with Suki. “These pants hardly fit me anymore. I am getting fat. “Do you think that I should put on another pair of pants?” It may have been a temptation too big to resist, and he didn’t. “Yeah” he said with an impatience in his tone that Suzki interpreted to mean “of course stupid.”
