The dictionary defines a nemesis as ‘a long-standing rival; an arch-enemy.’
According to my deciphering skills, it seems to me, that a nemesis is an inescapable agent who could very possibly become someone’s downfall.
Well, guess what? I have one of those. A nemesis. A big old aggravating downfall. He’s also my foe, combatant, and antagonist. His name is Phil ‘Mac’ Macaw and he’s an evil, bird brained idiot with a tongue that resembles a deformed penis.
I detest that zebra-faced talking parrot more than I detest my idiot Lady and Man Owners, but at least my idiot owners didn’t single handedly try to destroy life as we know it in The Animal Kingdom.
I know, I know. You’re wondering what the actual fuck, right? Animal Kingdom? An evil macaw? A dog with a podcast?
I think that for you to truly understand how one bird almost destroyed the world of animal podcasting, we need to go right back to the start. Back to where it all began. Back to before I met Heidi, and way back to before I knew anything about radio frequencies.
Now, keeping in mind that in dog years; one year equals seven, you and I are going to have to go all the way back….to last year. Back to before I knew what I was capable of. Back to before I knew what it really meant to be part of a squad.
Only then will you be able to understand what happened.
Only then will you see why I killed Phillip ‘Mac’ Macaw.
