Blue Wuzzelthump

Imagine my dismay: I had a gorgeous Tea Taster – a small bird from the island of Ceylon – and when I pulled the cover off of the cage, I found instead this Blue Wuzzelthump. Wuzzelthumps begin their lives the size of peas and, due to their voracious appetites, end up being the size of their meals. This fellow, obviously, ate my Tea Taster. While I’m no fan of Wuzzelthumps, you might be.

To the folks that purchased him: I’d keep my pets and small children away from this one. While tiny, he is ferocious. Tea Tasters are small birds and this Blue Wuzzelthump will most likely be getting hungry again.

The house drips and shudders.

Bubo has returned wet and cranky from a bleak and stormy hunt. The drunken goat child has disappeared. The Kurundu Bird is singing with the rain. The Blue Wuzzelthump has been adopted. I am sipping whiskey and listening to the storm rattle this old house on the back of the hill in Brooklyn.
