Polly Want a Cracker?

Apparently, the phrases I use the most are:

"Sigh. . . OK. Let's do this!"

"Ready? Let's roll!"

"Wait a second. . . . . hmmmmmm. . . . "

"You have two options."

"I have a question for you."

and

"That is my answer."

I know this not because I am on Candid Camera (although I often feel that I am), and not from family home videos I watch to reminiscence (although I often do this for fun).

No, no. . . I know this because I - Lucky Me! - have my very own parrot. He laughs like me, smiles like me, and - God help us - talks like me.

It's unnerving.
