Birdie Costume

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Kellie had a costume party to go to. She searched for a costume at the local store. Nothing suited her. Suddenly in the back of the store, she found a bag and looked inside. She found a bird costume. It had a red-breast, so she assumed it was a robin red-breast. She paid the salesgirl and headed home.

She pulled up videos on the computer to get an idea of how the bird acts. She got a few ideas on movements and practiced them. She thought they looked convincing.

Arriving at the party she was shocked to find out no one else was dressed in a costume. They had played a prank on her and tricked her into wearing a costume. As they started to laugh at her she burst into tears.
