Gertrude's Gonna Kill Me For This...

Hey guys...um...yeah...funny story...

So, apparently, Gertrude discovered that her cousin, Mayzie has an egg. She flew off to tell her Aunt, and I promised that I would stay with Mayzie.

Well...when I went to visit Mayzie, she was on Gertrude's nest, sitting on her egg. I told her Gertrude left for a while, and she seemed to buy it. Then, I asked her about her egg (as she was showing it off a bit)and then...she began crying. She told me how miserable she felt for messing around with Tweed McFirth, and how he left her with an egg. She then tells me that she hasn't had any free time for herself, and was going to break the news to Gertrude, but that she was too embarrassed to. She was looking for support from her cousin...

Feeling sorry for her, I told her that if she wanted, that I'd sit on her nest for a while, sot hat she could have some free time. She took up my offer, thanking me several times and kissing me on the cheek before leaving for the watering hole.

So..yeah...it's me and the egg...shootin' the breeze...

Morton won't stop laughing...and Kangaroo finds it to be so absurd...she's kinda right though. ..

Aw well...it's only for a while. Mayzie will return soon...

PS, also, I heard rumors of "hunters" coming into Nool. Everybody please be careful...

O__O ...

*low and hushed voice* She... did... what...?

Horton, exactly how long ago was this?

-Gertrude McFuzz

P.S. I'm writing from Auntie LaBird's house by the way. She took the news much better than I expected... and by that I mean she bawled her poor little heart out, soon proceeding to ask me exactly what happeend in explicit detail. I fully expected her to faint personally. But that's besides the point.

... *rubbing temples* And... and she hasn't returned yet, has she?

-Gertrude MCFuzz

P.S. Don't worry Horton. I'm sure she'll be fine. She's not crying anymore, and now she just looks a bit disappointed. I'm sure she just needs to talk to Mayzie is all... if we can ever find her again. *distressed sigh*

You seriously got roped into sitting on her egg? Aw Horton, I can’t believe you fell for the old crying bit. My sisters pull that on daddy all the time. You’re both too dang gullible.

For crying out loud! This Mayzie chick got herself into her own mess. She should have to deal with the consequences herself. Getting some poor sap to do the work for her is lame. Um, no offense.

*mutters* That bird should be thankful I ain’t her size.....

But I have to ask; how the heck can an elephant manage to sit on an egg without... you know... uh, crushing it? The idea has me baffled here.

Hanna! Don’t be so rude to Horton! You shouldn’t try to fix other people’s problems. It’s none of your business.

Sorry, Horton. I think you’re a good person to be helping this bird out. I’m sure she won’t be gone long. After all, mom says that no real mother can stand being apart from their child for too long.

Oh for goodness' sakes, Horton. Of course I said it's absurd. Not only that, but it's stupid- you can't just sit around while there's hunters just getting closer. What is so wrong about self-preservation? Common sense?

Please just don't start talking to the egg. At least you really WERE talking to someone in the speck. I assure you, you're not going to get a conversation through an egg.
