Birdie would like you to meet her parents: a goldfish and a moldy piece of bread. Don’t mind the yelling, she didn’t get a pony as a child. And she certainly didn't burn down an owl farm.

But she's willing to feed you. And there may be egg rolls and chocolate cake! That is, if Carol the ex-maid brings it and doesn't hold a grudge against Birdie for being fired. You may also meet What, When, Alexa (who's hiding in the bathroom) and Birdie’s sister Scoot, who thinks she’s a glazed Virginia Ham.

It's a perfectly crazy dinner party. Consider this your invitation.
