Of Hummingbirds and Neurosis - Bet

Bet: Is it safe?
Bait: Yes, its safe, I checked all around the feeder and there are no hummingbirds

Bet: Are you sure?  Those things are fast.
Bait: Yes, yes, I'm sure, I sat under it for an hour, no sign of any birds.

Bet: Those things aren't birds!  They hover around and stare at you with their evil beady eyes!
Bait: Well, they taste like birds, even if they don't have a whole lot of meat on them.

Bet: I'm not going back there until fall when they're gone... they can poke an eye out with their sharp little beaks, zooming round like maniacs.
Bait: I'm telling you, there aren't any around.

Bait: ... but I did see some grasshoppers....
Bet: GRASSHOPPERS??!??!!  I HATE those things... jumping all over, landing on you with their sticky little feet!

Bait: Watch out!  There's a hummingbird carrying a grasshopper!
Bet: WHERE????  WHERE????  IS IT ON ME????

Bait: hehehehe
Bet: You suck... that's not funny!  I'm not talking to you any more!

And that is why cats suck, as Bet so clearly said. Good to see you are still writing Bet.
