OK, tell me again, with a bit more attention to detail... How did this happen? -- Anon Guest
Lam looked around at the mess. Obviously, "Because bird," wasn't going to cover it. All they had to do was focus on the important bits. "So... you're aware of the presence of a bird..."
"How did the bird get in? This was a protected environment." Exhibit A was a pink and grey parrot with a white crest. Currently contained, under strenuous objection, under an overturned basket. It was also dangling upside-down and spiritedly attempting to gnaw its way out.
"I don't know," protested Lam. "I was gonna clean the vent filters like you told me, but when I had the panel off--"
"Wait. You took the whole panel off?"
