Two blue parrots is a syndrome I'm assigning to modern life. The other day I did in fact see a man walking (along the Fulham Road in London) with two large, blue parrots on his shoulders. I was walking behind him. The parrots occasionally checked me out. They were magnificent birds. But what I noticed, apart from the parrots, was that either no one else noticed them (too busy tapping/talking on their phones) or they purposely avoided looking at the man and his parrots. Maybe they thought the man was crazy. I wanted to throw their phones away, shake them, force them to look! Look! Two blue parrots! Not something you see every day is it? People in cities are so cynical, making out they've seen everything, they don't want to show a flicker of emotion or interest in a stranger, even if he does have two blue parrots on his shoulder.
Previously one: We saw a man walking his ferret in Tooting!
Previously two: I saw a fox cub walking along a road near London Bridge in broad daylight!
People are just too busy to show interest in such things.
