Embarrassing Stories: Don't Listen to the Parrot!

Embarrassing moments ... they're proof of Mother Nature's bad sense of humor. And when those embarrassing moments happen when you're trying to impress a guy on a date or during sex (gah!), it's even worse.

But once time has passed and you've gotten a couple of good therapy sessions in, you learn to laugh about those mortifying incidents.

Thanks to this week's embarrassing moment, I will never get a bird for a pet.


While my husband and I were in the midst of moving, we had to stay at his mother's house for a few weeks. We slept on the couch in the living room, with their pet parrot. Their talking pet parrot.

After a particularly frisky night, we were all sitting at breakfast when the bird started screaming. We turned to see what was wrong but couldn't quite make out what he was saying. After a few listens, it became clear. In his best high-pitched voice, he was saying, "Oh baby. Oh god. Oh baby," followed by screams.

My father-in-law couldn't stop laughing, while my mother-in-law sat there confused. Needless to say, we never had sex in that house again.

Yeah, never getting a bird. Ever. Have you ever been outed by a pet?
