conversation from the balcony

"Why!  Hullo!  How good of you to come and visit during our dinner.  We're really glad to see you.  It's a bit boring when there's just us to speak to each other while we eat.

No, no need to come out, we can see you through the glass.  Yes, we'd wave back to you, but can't you see we're busy eating?  Still waving?  Never  mind.  We'll just carry on here.

Tasty stuff you have up here although this one's odd.  The leaves are nicer than the flowers. It's usually the other way round.  Now that one over there with the leaves of two colours, is really good.  Green salad one side and purple dessert the other.  You used to have it up where we could  reach it easily.  Why did you move it?  Not one of us will come down there for it now.

What was that?  You don't like the mess we leave when we eat?  Stuff ends up on the floor?  Well, really!  I like that!  You don't expect us to eat off the floor, do you?  Would you do that?  Hmm, thought that would be your answer.  So don't expect us to do that either.

Oh, that one we really like was given to you by your mother.  You say it's her birthday tomorrow?  Tell her she has good taste, we congratulate her.  What's that?  She died three years ago?  Well, we've not seen our mother for a long time either, since we were kicked out of the nest.  So that about makes us equal, I think.  Can't understand why you make such a fuss.

Oh, so you're coming out here to see us better.  We're really quite handsome, don't you think?

I don't think we want to make a closer acquaintance.  Stop right there, you're close enough already.  Put down that broom.  Don't wave it near us!  We're going right now.  Won't be back for quite a while.  Hooroo!"

He he; I am sure you have a correct insight into these birds, of which I am seeing more and more each day.
