Day 294: The Beak Plant

There is a price for (feathery) fame.

Even though you can’t help how sleek and shiny your feathers are – any more than you can help how cute your curved beak and pink feet are – or how fetching your delicate grey crest and round black eyes are – this will not buy you any respite from the adoration of fans.

They want to know everything about you – from your preening routines to your favorite napping strategies to the delicacies you most enjoy.

And of course they flock to classes whenever you offer them.

In a particularly popular class you offer only rarely, fans can learn how to perform one of your signature moves – the “Beak Plant.”

It looks like the classroom is already full....and they look hungry.
