Waiting For Hitchcock

Hey, Lamar, when is this guy supposed to get here?

I don’t know, Bob. I think he shoulda been here by now.

What time is it, Maureen?

Time to return to the nest, birdbrain. My feet are killing me standing for hours out in this cold water.


  1. Writing dialogue for shore birds is an excellent exercise in the literary arts. There's WATERSHIP DOWN for a blueprint. And now there's "The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog and of His Friend Marilyn Monroe," a comic novel by author Andrew O'Hagan, due in December. The book is written from the viewpoint of Monroe's Maltese, who lived with the star during the last two years of her life. I see THE LIFE AND TIMES OF SYDNEY THE SHORE BIRD in your future.

  2. Loved this format......simply, entertaining and interesting seeing all of the birds sitting waiting for that "someone" to say "something". Beverly
