What is an interesting factoid about yourself? I once saved a parrot from a fire. His name was Rocky, and it was in the late 1980s. We were at a fire, and there was this big, giant cage with a bird lying at the bottom. I took him out and put the oxygen mask on him, and he was OK. His owner was beside herself that I saved him.
