The Covert Fling

In most featherless circles, there is a misconception that feathered beings are messy eaters.

In fact, just the opposite is the case.

Feathered beings are such neatnicks they can’t stand to have any detritus lingering – on their feet, feathers, beaks or anywhere.

Such beings who are lucky enough to have quick, well-trained large featherless waitresses may not struggle much with this issue.

But for feathered beings whose waitresses are still, well, learning, a well-timed “covert fling” can make all the difference in maintaining dining sanity.

Well this dish looks tasty - I'll just have some.
Well this dish looks tasty – I’ll just have some.
Sigh. I can feel the buildup on my neat curved beak, but my waitress is still working on the last assignment I gave her.

"Flying mashed potatoes?" No, Mom, I'm pretty sure you're seeing things again.
“Flying mashed potatoes?” No, Mom, I think I would notice if I saw any mashed potatoes fly by.

With love (& lots of feathers),
