The Parrot


A woman went to a pet shop and immediately spotted a large, beautiful parrot. There was a sign on the cage that said $50.00.

"Why so little?", she asked the pet store owner.

The owner looked at her and said, "Look, I should tell you first that this bird used to live in a house of Prostitution and sometimes it says some pretty vulgar stuff."

The woman thought about this, but decided she had to have the bird any way.

She took it home and hung the bird's cage up in her living room and waited for it to say something. The bird looked around the room, then at her, and said, "New house, new madam."

The womam was a bit shocked at the implication, but then thought "that's really not so bad."

When her two teenage daughters returned from school the bird  looked at them and said, "New house, new madam, new girls."

The girls and the woman  were a bit offended, but then began to laugh at the situation considering how and where the parrot had been raised.

Moments later, the woman's husband Keith came home from work.

The bird looked at him and said, "Hi Keith!"

Hey! What´s up?
I think I need to improve my fluency, I usually write without difficulty, but I don´t speak fast and I've difficulty to understand when other people speak to me.
All the best,
