Betty Boop…"Hey, whatcha doing?"
Me…. "Nothing much, how about you?."
Baiting Boop….."I’m just calling to see if you put your hummingbird feeder up yet?" (Drat, I know exactly where this is going)
Me… "No not yet, why?" (feigning ignorance while swearing a blue streak under my breath).
Boastfull Boop…"Because we saw a hummer this morning, put our feeder up and are now watching the first hummer of the season. I just wanted to tell you so you would put yours out." (Yeah, sure, that’s exactly why you called. Uh huh, right. ) "Oh I’ve got another call, gotta go" (I could actually hear her smirking as she said goodby)
So once again Bratty Boop wins the annual "Nah, nah, I saw it first" contest. And while there’s no reward like a free lunch or anything like that involved (why would I ever agree to something like that when I have never, ever won this stupid contest) the winner does get bragging rights, which she takes full advantage of every chance she gets.
While we’re on the subject of show-offs and braggarts, here’s another one.
no, not this one
not this one either
Now Cola definitely deserves those bragging rights!!
