The magician luckily found himself on a piece of wood floating in the middle of the sea, as fate would have it ... with the parrot.
They stared at each other with hatred, but did not utter a word.
This went on for a day... and then 2 days. and then 3 days.
Finally on the 4th day, the parrot could not hold back any longer and said
"OK, I give up. What did you do with the ship?"
