Bertram "Bertie" Wooster

We bought a budgie yesterday. He is officially mine, so I get the final word on what to name him. Which is a good thing, because I don't think we would ever reach consensus. Stan is wisely above the fray, but here is a
run down of everyone's opinions -

Summer wants to call him Jeeves instead of Bertie, but I think it will be much easier to teach him to say, "What, what, what, what?" and, "What-ho, Jeeves!" than to teach him, "I endeavor to give satisfaction, sir."

Rachel wants to call him Poofy.

Heather is happy with Wooster.

Gwen likes William.

Kelly wants to name him Phillip.

Michael wants to call him Blue Licorice and Spot.

Naomi alternates between Birdhead and Headbird.

What do you think he looks like?

Very exciting! He's a beautiful budgie. I'm almost jealous. I like the Jeeves idea, but Bertram Wooster is pretty awesome, so sorry Summer.

You bought a bird? We would have given you one for free.

Thanks for the thought, but we wanted a little bird that would only live a decade, not a big bird who will live another seventy years. We are too old for that kind of pet :)

African Greys only live about 30 - 40 years, and Samson is almost 12 already. So we shipped him, I'll email you the airbill number.
