I can't sit still while any of those pieces are playing. I'll have to have some Enya playing.

ooh, good ones.

or andy, how about a good sousa march? ya can't drown out that amazing piccolo solo that hits a flat +1 octave, of course, that rides over top of "stars and stripes forever". i'll never forget that riff . it's all i hear when it's played with something in my gut keeping time.

sorry, gettin" a bit abstract.

my eldest parrot louie and i love to have fun whistling to that little ditty.

Have never had an MRI. Are Sousa marches an option, and do you have to bring your own parrot? Can parrot go into the hamburger bun/ panini/tube with you?

yes... and no.

the music should be deafening, and the parrot is there to bite your big toe to make sure that your fear of the machine is silly; this is real pain...

I have heard of people bringing a cat or dog into the MRI. It's awfully expensive to run the machine for a cat or dog, but if someone is in there anyway and doesn't mind the company of a critter...

I think that makes sense. If I ever have to get an MRI, I would plan to fit DH, beagle, and any available friend or neighbor in with me.

afterwards you get an 8x10 of you and the bird on your shoulder.
