How did we end up in a Hitchcock movie?
I guess they want us 6 feet apart and wearing a mask

Oh dear! The bird seed that you purchased must have been industrial strength!
So much for alone time!
I loved your last tweet.
I thought YOU were brining the popcorn.
I am telling you to stop investing in bird seed stock.

Go Home! Save Lives!
Why don't we go see that new Alfred Hitchcock movie.

So, even the birds are checking on our social distancing .....
"I dare say, I do believe they think you are a peacock!"
Darling, what have you been putting in the bird feeders?
Lady Lydia was impressed with The authenticity of Sir Reynold’s Bird calls.
So, Madame, you paid 200 francs in Paris for a perfume called "Graine Pour Oiseaux"? Funny, that translates in English as "birdseed."
Was that Alfred Hitchcock who just walked by, Dear?
I know you said your place was a zoo, but I thought you were being facetious.
Yes. I was a fool. The king was wrong. Social distancing has indeed improved the environment.
