live long and prosper
Spotting a love bird in a small shop in an alley off of Heping W. Rd., I stepped in to say hi. The bird jumped onto my shoulder and proceeded to bite my neck (ouch!). The elderly proprietor came to my rescue, catching the bird and putting him back in his cage. The kindly gentleman then launched into an extemporaneous speech on the secrets of marital bliss. The bite marks are gone, but the imparted wisdom remains.
