If You Give A Parrot A Berry:
If you give a parrot a berry, it will get excited and flap around. In its excitement, it will hit and break a vase. It will feel terrible and want to pay for it. Unfortunately, when it goes upstairs to smash its piggy bank, it isn't strong enough. While you go to the tool shed to get a hammer, it will see the mailbox and want to read the mail. Reading the mail, it will discover that it has been invited to a costume contest. After spending hours thinking, it will decide to go as a parrot. It will win "Most Realistic". As a prize for winning, it will get some marbles. The marbles will remind it of its favorite berries. And chances are, it will want one!
