This is the story of Tesla the bird 🐦 Last weekend, we went to Yorkton to get a budgie. We almost did not get a budgie because Benny was playing Minecraft for an hour and then he got sick. We were about to turn around but then Benny said he was good enough to keep on driving even though in about 20 minutes, he threw up. We still made it to Yorkton. Once we got there, we went straight to the pet store. We went to the back of the store where the animals were. There were about six budgies all white and blue except for one. It was green and yellow with a blue stripe on its nose. That is the bird that I chose. We picked out a cage, food, treats, bowls, etc. We told the pet store person to hold the bird, the cage, and that other stuff. We then had lunch and I decided to name my budgie Lyriq, Tesla. or Elon. I decided on Tesla. Then we did a bunch of stuff and came back to get Tesla. The pet guy put him in a box and we drove home. When we got home, I outfitted his cage and let him into it. Hiway started whining. We assumed he would stop but he has not stopped yet. Now, whenever I go to see Tesla, he runs over and starts barking. We must put him outside, but he still barks. Now I am trying to teach Tesla to talk by saying the same words over and over.
