Doing dishes with parrots...

Doing dishes with a parrot on each shoulder is like running a marathon with a monkey on each leg... Inefficient and time consuming... But ohhhh so much more fun!!

Hmmm.... Well I don't do pix of me... But it goes like this...... Short fat woman standing at sink with a tiel on one shoulder and a GCC on the other... Fat woman turns on water... Both birds immediately start climbing down arms ... Fat woman shoos them back up.... Conure starts repelling down chest woman pulls soapy hands out of hot water to push her back up... Meanwhile tiel is running back down other arm... Fat woman gives up and cleans out second sink... Fends off both birds while she washes sink out... Gets wide shallow dish and adjusts water temp to a cool trickle... Allows conure into sink... Conure dips in face and then sneezes... Conure swims and bathes in dish... Fat woman picks conure out of sink and places on shoulder... Conure starts using fat woman's hair as a towel while making happy conure grunts... Fat woman places tiel in sink... Fat woman swooshes fingers thru water... Tiel soaks feet in water... Fat woman splashes tiel... Conure shoves beak behind fat woman's ear still making happy conure sounds... Tiel has had enough and flies onto fat woman's chest... Woman places both wet birds into their cages so she can disinfect the sink... Fat woman finishes dishes in peace!

ROFLMAO, this s hilarious.....Joe our cockatiel boy is not interested in dishes, well, he's a BOY. But our IRN Tilly she cannot get enough of the sink either, she pulls spoons out thinking they are clean and drags them away. She also inspects the dishwasher and comments with her whistles

CHEERS Hanna

You should write comedy for a living! Much funnier than pictures or a video. I could envision the whole scene from your descriptions.
