Thursday Thriller: Pearl Cutts in “Popcorn Eggs”

When you work in “covert ops,” you are expected to keep everything you see, hear, smell or taste confidential.

But over time, all that secrecy can really build up.

Luckily, there are some things you can do to let off some steam.

For example, former lawyer-turned best-selling author John Grisham now writes legal thrillers for fun and profit.

Another great way to blend in with the rest of society on your days off is to use your talents for “acting.”

On that note, Love & Feathers is proud to present (alleged) covert operative-turned actor Pearl Cutts in his latest one-avian play:

“Popcorn Eggs”

When the audience enters the theater, they can’t see anything on stage, but they do hear an odd crinkly-crinkly sound that seems to be coming from behind the curtain. 

The curtain finally rises. By now the audience is holding their breath, which they let out with an audible collective sigh of relief (and a couple of loud “plunks” as certain audience members faint) when they, um, spy their beloved star at last.

Noted actor Pearl Cutts appears to be bending close in to a group of small, round, white objects.

What's that you say? Oh, well, that is highly unusual.....
What’s that you say? Oh, well, that is a highly unusual request…..
You want me to roost on you - all of you?
You say you are “eggs” and you want me to roost on you – all of you?
Well, let me just check out your accommodations first.
Well, let me just check out your accommodations first.
You have good taste in interior design, I will give you that - this shiny crinkly wall is particularly crispy and reflective.

Are you SURE you are "eggs?" You seem oddly familiar....
Are you SURE you are “eggs?” You look…and smell….oddly familiar….almost like….

Suddenly the set goes quiet, except for what sounds suspiciously like….chomping.

Well, I'm still not convinced you are "eggs," but you are quite crispy, so yes, I think I can accommodate your request.
Well, I’m still not convinced you are “eggs,” but you are quite crispy and flavorful, so yes, I think I can accommodate your request for roosting services.

At this point, the curtain snaps shut to give the, er, roost-er and his “eggs” some privacy.

The. End.
