Newbie secret agents often go out into the field with lots of book smarts.

But what they won’t learn until later is that all the “black ops” classroom training in the world can’t take the place of “claws on the ground” real-world case experience.

While it is rare, having new operatives shadow more seasoned, experienced covert operatives can really make a difference in the newbies’ effectiveness in the field.

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

“Strawberry Days of Summer”

This particularly presentation is for invited VIP guests only. But it is still “first come first serve” in terms of seating.

Perhaps this is why the lucky attendees begin standing in line not just hours, but days before the show. 

When the theater doors finally open, as a courtesy to the cast and crew, theater ushers are equipped with complimentary bottles of water (as well as deodorant) to give to guests as they enter the theater.

So you are the new recruit “training ops” sent to shadow me today, eh?
I must admit – you do look very new. And you smell very….fresh (which is a welcome change from the wafts coming from the direction of the audience!).
But you can’t shadow anything looking like that. For instance, what are these green things on top of your head? They are far too visible. We must first alter your appearance before going out into the field on a mission.
No it doesn’t matter if you think you look better with the green things than without. Yes, I know I get to keep both of my colors. Well, because I am .007, pint-sized super spy, that’s why.
Now hold still. Yes I know I look very fetching and feathery. Yes, I know I have a huge fan following. Yes, I do think it would be better if you could change your colors to grey and white instead.

Just then the mysterious (large featherless) being known only as “Mom” appears. 

Well, yes, “Mom,” but I am in the middle of training this new recruit for his first mission. Rogue fresh toasted waffles? Well why didn’t you say so right away? Look, recruit, something urgent has come up that only .007 can attend to. Yes, we will need to reschedule your field training.

“Mom” stretches out a finger and .007 quickly hops on. In a flash, both are gone.

Just then a waft of waffle from backstage intersects with a waft of aroma from the audience.

The curtain snaps shut. Later, theatergoers say they have never seen a curtain snap shut so fast before.

The. End.
