When I first came to college, I missed my family.
That being said, I was more than a bit hurt when my mom announced her new addition to the family:
Sheldon Olaf the cockatiel.
“Demon Bird” hated me from the start. He’s not the most amiable of creatures: he hisses at everyone, even those he try to be nice.
With that in mind, I was shocked this past break when I (sort of) won his trust. How’s that, you ask? Strawberry millet.
