I leave the TV on to a golden oldies music channel all day for the birds. Since these are tunes I actually recognize, I will periodically stop to sing and dance to the tune with my birds. Unfortunately, I am so non-rhythmic (is that a word?) and tone deaf that my parrots eventually stop their rhythmic bouncing to the tune to stare at me in total disbelief that I could sound so bad and dance so out of step with the rhythm that I confuse their innate sense of music. Or maybe they are just stunned to think that someone could find it that hard to bounce up and down with a simply beat and manage to stay in step. Or maybe they just can’t believe that after all these years of trying to show me how to keep the beat, I am still totally incapable of doing it for longer than the first four bars of any song.
