Working with large featherless beings has its pros.

It also has its cons.

For instance, even though you are a famous and feathery actor juggling multiple high-visibility, high-pressure creative projects at any given time, you can still get up in the morning and get to work right away with a chirp in your voice and a spring in your step.

And then there is your large featherless assistant.

Without a mysterious odd brown liquid she calls “coffee,” she might as well not wake up at all.

And when the coffee runs out….so does the productivity. Unfortunately, the coffee runs out frequently (not that you can blame it, really, given the irritable company it often has to keep).

In this gripping and suspenseful one-avian play, master sleuth .007 is on the job again, investigating:

“The Case of the Missing Coffee”

As the box office line begins to form, the VIP fans seem uncharacteristically….jumpy. Security is called in when two fans begin to tussle over the contents of a tall silver cup.

It would appear the fans, eager for the “full immersion” experience as usual, may have over-imbibed a certain warm brown liquid being featured in the upcoming performance by their favorite feathery actor. 

Luckily, it takes so long to break up the scuffle, the other fans have descended into a caffeinated crash before the theater doors swing open. For many, the crash combined with all the excitement is enough to create widespread fainting, leaving plenty of choice seats available for those at the back of the line.

.007 here. I was called and I came. What seems to be the trouble?
The coffee is missing? Again? Well, perhaps you might try being less grumpy when you greet it in the morning.
Well, yes, I can see it is really missing. Yup. All of it. There’s not a drop in there.
Hey. Wait a minute. You there. “Coffee Drop.” What do you have to say for yourself?
Where did all your friends go? Yes, of course I already looked inside the cup. Okay, fine, I’ll check again. Nope. Still missing.
“Mom.” There you are. So I have good news and bad news. The bad news is the coffee is gone. The good news is that “Coffee Drop” here told me exactly where it went. Although I suspect you already know.

Looking a bit red-faced (and still quite grumpy), the mysterious being known only as “Mom” retrieves her charge and the empty cup and heads off to stage right. 

The last thing the fans see before the curtain snaps shut is “Mom” giving her pint-sized passenger a gentle kiss right on top of his soft feathery head.

The End.

  1. I found out my bunny likes coffee the other night when I set my mug on the carpet and she went crazy trying to get into it! I’m glad I found your page, I don’t know much about turtles and birdies so I like reading about them!
