Day 285: Egg on a Ledge

Recently Love & Feathers was proud to announce that our own (very pretty) feathery star had been selected to receive the prestigious “Golden Waffle” award for best acting.

He followed this up with a second incredible performance – a pensive and dramatic one-avian show entitled “Sunrise, Sunset.”

Never one to allow himself to be pigeonholed into a single genre, his next piece is a gripping edge-of-your-seat thriller called “Egg on a Ledge.”

Prepare to be, well, gripped.

Act One begins now.

The stage setting is stark and minimal (the better to keep all eyes on the feathery star, of course).

Well, well. What have we here?

Well, well. What is a morsel like you doing up here?

My - this is a mighty high ledge.

My – this is a mighty high ledge.

This is a HIGH LEDGE - do you hear me? HIGH.

This is a HIGH LEDGE – do you hear me? It is very HIGH.

So don't even think about trying to escape.

What did I tell you – gripping, right?

Now the actor takes his traditional brief (lengthy) intermission.

Act Two begins now.

Nom, nom, nom.

Nom, nom, nom.

See? What did I tell you? It is a HIGH LEDGE.

See? What did I tell you? It is a HIGH LEDGE.

Wait a minute. Where did the egg go? Where did it go? It was just here!

Wait a minute. Where did the egg go? Could it be? Did it….no. Oh.

Act Two concludes, and the curtain closes quickly.

Stage Hand notes: It is important to close the curtain as quickly as possible, because the cleaning crew will need plenty of time to clean (mop, scour) the stage before the star’s next performance.

The End.
