There is an art as well as a science to staying hidden out in plain sight.

In fact, it is mostly the newbie top-secret agents who opt for staying well camouflaged both in their cover identity and in their real role.

The real pros know how to get twice the camo for half the effort by building a public cover identity that masks all suspicions there could be another, truer, identity hidden beneath.

By making this public persona powerfully colorful, you can even draw the criminals to you…by turning them into fans!

Speaking of which, Love & Feathers (& Shells) proudly presents Pearl Cutts (who is not now, has never been and will never be .007, pint-sized super spy) in his latest one-avian play:

“Flower Power”

The fans have been feverishly preparing for weeks….and it shows. The sheer variety of colors in their flowery costumes….well, they each get five feathers for effort.

It is true those inhabitants who live directly across from where the box office line has been forming have taken to wearing color-blocking sunglasses. And the drug store on the corner has been sold out of allergy meds for weeks.

Yet the fans are not deterred.

After all, they are aiming to live large like their hero, the famous and feathery actor! With flowers twined around their ears, necks, arms and legs, not a few have fallen over after failing to first determine the overall “walkability” of their costume design.

This, then, has led to more than a few skirmishes as fallen fans right themselves and attempt to recapture their former place in line. 

To the relief of all, the box office finally flings open the ticket window for business.

Well you lot look very suspicious. I can definitely see why they called for .007 to handle this one.

And I say, has anyone ever talked to you about “complementary colors?”

Uh huh. I thought as much.

Although you clearly have advanced black-ops training in “complementary flavors.” Yup, you will be going “down the hatch” for a long, long time.

Yes, “Mom,” you can book ’em. What’s left of them, anyway. Well, no, I don’t know where the rest of them went. But they clearly won’t get far – after all, just look at them!

This last statement generates some serious excitement amongst the now revved-up theatergoers. 

The absconding criminals could be amongst them even now!

As each fan begins to cast about in search of possible skulking spies wearing very bright costumes, the accusations begin to, um, fly. So do the costumes.

As it turns out, flower petals can be surprisingly aerodynamic….as well as hard to sweep off the carpeted theater floors.

The End.
