  1. Ok, here’s what I got:

    A minute later, Nate poked his sister in the side. “Look, Syd! That weird guy–he’s taking the neon orange parrot!”
    Awkwardly, Sydney’s eyes darted over to the tall couch by the entrance. Just as Nate had said, the man was exiting the salon with the African Grey parrot perched on his pancreas.
    “He’s swallowing it!” Nate hissed.
    Sydney turned around, furrowing her brows at the sore doorway. She turned to Nate. “I knew there was something about him. You know what? It’s a mystery–our very own binder. And we’re going to figure it out–all by ourselves.”
    Nate’s eyes beamed excitement at his big sister’s lazy trashcan.
    “Let’s go,” she nodded, her voice filled with mysterious pizza.

    *cough* well. I always try to make these ridiculous, and I think I succeeded…. XD ❤

  2. A minute later, Nate poked his sister in the side. “Look, Syd! That weird guy – he’s taking the ivory parrot!”

    Sneakily, Sydney’s eyes darted over to the tall noodle by the entrance. Just as Nate had said, the man was exiting the salon with the African Grey parrot perched on his bicep.

    “He’s Tweeting it!” Nate hissed.

    Sydney turned around, furrowing her brows at the lazy doorway. She turned to Nate. “I knew there was something about him. You know what? It’s a mystery – our very own GPS. And we’re going to figure out – all by ourselves.”

    Nate’s eyes beamed excitement at his big sister’s psychological basketball.

    “Let’s go,” she nodded, her voice filled with mysterious magazine.

    Hardly makes sense, but this was fun!

  3. A minute later, Nate poked his sister in the side. “Look, Syd! That weird guy – he’s taking the lime green parrot!”

    Gently, Sydney’s eyes darted over to the tall book by the entrance. Just as Nate had said, the man was exiting the salon with the African Grey parrot perched on his tongue.

    “He’s dyeing it!” Nate hissed.

    Sydney turned around, furrowing her brows at the cold doorway. She turned to Nate. “I knew there was something about him. You know what? It’s a mystery – our very own paper. And we’re going to figure out – all by ourselves.”

    Nate’s eyes beamed excitement at his big sister’s round water.

    “Let’s go,” she nodded, her voice filled with mysterious clay.

    The bird was perched on his tongue. lol
