Yesterday at lunch I was complaining about how I couldn't find a plush parrot anywhere for Aiden's pirate Halloween costume. I honestly didn't think it would be this hard. My dad is astounded that I can't find a stuffed tropical bird when I live at the beach. GOOD POINT.
Anyhoo, I voiced my irritation when a friend says, "Have you checked the pirate store on the Strand?"
WHAT?! No! If I had, then I would probably have a parrot right now! Pirate store? PERFECT.
But, the pirate store is not open yet. Boo. Instead, I went to Michael's and found the world's tiniest parrot!
