Allison was told to go to the university’s provost office to sign some papers. So she did. As she got off the elevator, she heard an odd sqwak. Then Allison heard a female voice saying “stop, don’t walk any further, he bites.” Then she saw a lady sit up and come toward her but not in a straight line, but clearly going in a round-about way avoiding going through what turned out to be the bird’s space. There was a green bird in the middle of a waiting area. They had put a lamp on the floor for it to sit on, and it had some toys around it. Clearly nobody could pass through or sit in the waiting area. The lady tried to get the bird to talk, but she couldn’t. “He talks for the provost”, she said.
