The sentence "Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day?" cracks me up even more... Like his rear end is talking away to him. :heehee

So, I started talking to the bee "whachu wanna say ta me little Mr. bee? Come on. I know you're putting me on. Go ahead, say somethin'".

Don't worry, he didn't answer.

What's that mean about those of us who do get answers? :shock:

Miss Jan -- Could you please pronounce those words for me? :)

Teacher, are you demonstrating a frog trying to catch a fly? Otherwise you aren't looking very professional this evening. :-)

Sorry to bring this back up but I guess I missed this week. And although my 'character' doesn't speak, does this still fall in with what you mean?

It's an old story and still needs some work, but I loved rereading it anyway. :wink:

Jan - just trying to catch up.

“Hey, you're supposed to be devouring hay in this new kingdom. So why the saliva drip every time I pass? You're supposed to lie down with me and be mates – you'll be in big trouble with the boss if you revert to your old ways.”

Snap! “That was worth dying for.”
