When you work in “covert ops,” you are expected to keep everything you see, hear, smell or taste confidential.
But over time, all that secrecy can really build up.
Luckily, there are some things you can do to let off some steam.
For example, former lawyer-turned best-selling author John Grisham now writes legal thrillers for fun and profit.
Another great way to blend in with the rest of society on your days off is to use your talents for “acting.”
On that note, Love & Feathers is proud to present (alleged) covert operative-turned actor Pearl Cutts in his latest one-avian play:
When the audience enters the theater, they can’t see anything on stage, but they do hear an odd crinkly-crinkly sound that seems to be coming from behind the curtain.
The curtain finally rises. By now the audience is holding their breath, which they let out with an audible collective sigh of relief (and a couple of loud “plunks” as certain audience members faint) when they, um, spy their beloved star at last.
Suddenly the set goes quiet, except for what sounds suspiciously like….chomping.
At this point, the curtain snaps shut to give the, er, roost-er and his “eggs” some privacy.
