Just a little background: Every morning, I always leave the TV (or at least the radio) on for my cockatiel when I head out to work so that he has some vocal and extra visual stimulation while I'm away. I got in the habit of using my TV more often, since moving out to the Midwest, because it took me over a year to figure out that my little stereo wasn't dead but actually connected to a "hot" outlet controled by a light switch. (Yes, I am an architectural lighting designer. Doh!) Whenever I do leave the TV on for him, I tune it to the Disney Channel, because I know that there's no way that he'd be able to pick up curse words or bad phrases from that station. (I actually hoped that he'd pick up good words/phrases since they repeat a lot of the same shows. No such luck...)
I usually leave shortly after turning on the TV but this time I put it on while gathering my stuff for work. I don't know what show had just started (something having to do with kids riding a train) and the conductor started singing, "Give a Little Whistle... (whistle, whistle)" Argh!!! It was a catchy tune, albeit annoying when they did the whistle part, which made it that much more frustrating when the lyrics/tune stuck in my head - including the whistle!
[Sigh] I think I'm going to have to blast some heavy metal in my earbuds today just to drive that tune out of my head. I'm just lucky that my little guy hasn't picked up that song... Yet! (I actually looked at him before I left for work and said, "You better not start whistling that tune." He looked at me as if to say, "If you don't start leaving on a channel that's more exciting, we'll see what happens.") LOL!
