Day 299: Super(bird) Modeling

Many beings (both with and without feathers) aspire to start a career in something called “supermodeling.” Yet this profession’s exacting job requirements (“hold still,” “look very pretty”) cull out almost as many candidates as they draw in. Only the creme de la creme make it all the way to “supermodeling” status. In the avian world, successful super(bird)models also know that micromanagement is the key to career longevity. After all, let’s say you take a(nother) very pretty picture, but then your large featherless assistant chooses to display it to your adoring fans in an unattractive frame?

Thank goodness I am an expert micromanager – I will just let her know to add more of these green things to hide the pink.

  1. You micromanage so well Pearl! And don’t worry only a Manly Man such as you could pull of the pink frame!

    1. Thanks for the vote of confidence, Jeanne (for the record, both Pearl and his proud mommy wholeheartedly agree!)

  2. […] the same way, for that rare being who can sing, act, and look very good in photographs, it is only natural everyone else will want to duplicate their signature […]

  3. […] you would want to do this every day, but if you are also very busy with shredding and modeling and acting and preening, setting aside one specific day can be good […]
