"Gosh, what're you?"
your previous post."
"Yes, I remember...
...but you're all yellow up top now."
"True. Weather's heating up, Geo. What you see is sunscreen."
"You use pollen for sunscreen?"
"We use pollen for everything, like in Shakespeare."
"Hamlet? 'To bee or not to bee?'(act3,scene1)"
"Don't get silly, Geo. It's 'to thine own self bee true' --Pollenius's line (act1,scene3)."
"I believe that's 'Polonius'. "
"Well don't tell anybody or the whole ecology could crash. Go and visit the other leaf and petal workers instead. I'm sure you'll see the need for discretion."
"'Most humbly (not bumblebee) do I take my leave, my lord.(act1, scene3)'"
"That's better, Geo. Now go see how your other friends are getting along. Go see Ladybug on the roses."
"Hello yourself, human. Stop staring at my butt."
"Then, turn around. I can't get into the roses for another angle."
"Too busy eating aphids --who are you anyway?"
"I'm Geo. I write a blog.
"Geo.? I've heard of you. You're the clumsy idiot who stepped on his college counselor in 1970. Get out of here."
"Well, that was an accident. I notice you have no wing-markings, does that mean...?"
"I am a Ladybug of spotless reputation. Now please move on so I can eat these blameless screaming aphids. I believe an old friend of yours is sitting on a sage leaf. Goodbye! "
"'I shall in all my best obey you, Madam.(act1,scene2).'...Darwin? Darwin Doorbooger? is it really you? "
"Yes, that happened to me after a pacemaker change-out. Are you all right?"
"I feel ok, but am concerned about all this talk of Hamlet."
"You are turning a lovely green, Darwin. How would Shakespeare trouble you?"
"He also wrote Two Gentlemen Of Verona, Geo. What if I should turn black and be mistaken for a castanet?"
"You could be clicked to rhythmic ruin in a Tarantella!"
"Exactly! Can you help?"
"Don't worry, Darwin, I know where we can get yellow sunscreen and unwanted wing-spots that will prevent such calamity. Hop into my palm, there's a bee and a ladybug I'd like you to meet.
