Being an internationally famous gourmand isn’t as easy as it often appears.

For example, sometimes you have to deal with other beings who don’t have much of a palate.

If one of them happens to be your large featherless waitress, this can mean a lengthy re-training process starting right from square one.

In the meantime, you may have to settle for less than your typical gourmet fare. However, if you persevere, there is hope the training will eventually work and your cuisine will then improve.

Love & Feathers is proud to present the world-famous and feathery actor Pearl Cutts in his latest one-avian play:


Fans arriving to collect their tickets at the box office are quick to notice some changes to the premises. Specifically, everything has been painted… There are several new green beings stationed at the entrances. And, along with their tickets, each theatergoer is handed a little posy of green things. 

A bit befuddled by all this, there isn’t the usual bickering and jostling for position as fans enter the theater. Which is good, because the star wastes no time in striding out onto the stage!

So, as I was saying…..yes, “Mom?” Well, can it wait? I see…..

The mysterious being known only as “Mom” has approached the star. She has yet another green being in her hand.

Arugu-what? Oh, Arugula! And you had to meet with me right away, no waiting? Well, yes, you do look familiar to me too.
I agree. A taste-test is only one way to know for sure whether we’ve met previously or not.
Um, “Mom,” you didn’t happen to prepare this “arugula” dish for me personally, did you?
Uh huh. Yup. That explains it. I’m sure we’ve met before, but under far more, well, flavorful circumstances, and likely in my personal Small Chef’s kitchen.

The star calls “Mom” over for a whispered consultation. Fans can only catch snippets of their conversation, which seems to include several repetitions of the words “Small Chef” and “recipe.” 

“Mom” hurries offstage holding the green being known as “arugula” and a lengthy list of notes and heads straight for her phone. She dials a number and can be heard saying, “Hi, Mom – yes, it is about a recipe….”

The curtain snaps shut. The overhead lighting comes on. It, too, is all green.

The End.
