I live with my boyfriend and spent last week at my parents' home taking care of my mom. She recently had ankle surgery. When I returned home on Monday night, our bird kept saying the name 'Maureen'. One of my co-workers joked that my boyfriend probably had a woman over named Maureen. As the week wore on, I started to get paranoid about this and asked my boyfriend about it last night. My question flustered him as he stuttered and stammered to answer. He said the bird probably heard the name on TV. Who should I believe... my bird or my boyfriend?
