A friend of mine in the Neuroscience program just got back from Hawaii (nice spot for an academic conference, I’ll say) and sent me some entirely amusing parrot pictures. FYI, the title of the email was “You in 40 Years?” Hrm.
“In Hilo, at “Bear’s Cafe,” I saw a retired lady eating breakfast with her African Grey “Yullie” or “Yummie” or
something like that. Notice he had has own plate and was eating breakfast. The lady knew who Alex was; I told her I had just met Dr. Pepperberg the week before….”
If only I could be so lucky as to be brunching with Pepper in Hawaii one day! Although, I can’t say much for that hat….
