Here I am, the answer to all your dreams.
stay out in the waiting room;
when the light is on, I am in session.
Okay, I'm not in session, I'm preening.

Pheasants are known for healing, and luck in love.
I'm a pheasant shore nuff.
Okay, come in.
I'm right here
hiding behind the waste basket.
Look into my goofy birdy eyes--
yep, you're pretty screwed up.
Let's see what we can do.
Yap yap yap

According to folklore, pheasants are harbingers of love and good luck, as well as being healers. The only time I ever encountered a pheasant, it absolutely exploded out of a bush, making a tremendous racket that scared me half to death.
