Today I have a plate of 4 yummy, delicious ripe strawBEARries! Strawberries are the perfect snack. I can’t wait to take a bite! (I am also wearing my new Australia tee shirt for the first time, courtesy of Chloe, Benaud, and Hicks).
“Hey Ajdin, whatcha got there?” It was Uncle Tibbs.
“I have 4 yummy strawberries. Would you like one?” I asked.
“Oooh yes please!” he replied. I gave him the biggest strawberry.
Now I have 3 strawberries left, still plenty for one little bear.
I was about to take my first bite when I heard a fluttering of wings.
“Ooooh! Strawberries! I love strawberries!” It was Miss Feathers.
“Hello Miss Feathers. Strawberries are beary delicious, aren’t they?” I handed her a strawberry.
That left me with just 2 strawberries. Two nice, ripe, delicious, sweet, fresh strawberries just waiting for me to —-
“Hi Ooogie.” I didn’t even have to look up. “I guess you’d like a strawberry also, huh?”
“Here you go,” I said, somewhat reluctantly, handing him a strawberry.
Wow. Everyone seems to like strawberries around here. Now I am down to just one strawberry. But that’s ok, because I’m going to eat it very slowly and really savor the taste. I’ll just pick it up and put it in my mouth like this —
“Parker, how nice to see you,” I said. “I will play with you after I eat this strawberry, okay?”
He whimpered softly.
“Please don’t do it,” I said. “Please don’t look at me with those puppy dog eyes…”
But it was too late. As some of you might know, the power of the puppy dog eyes is too strong to resist.
I handed Parker my last strawberry.
The strawberries were all gone. And I didn’t even have one.
“Strawberries are overrated anyways,” I said aloud, trying to feel better. But on the inside, I was really looking forward to a nice, juicy strawberry.
Then at that moment, my mom brought out a new plate stacked high with even more strawberries! Wow!
I immediately put my paws on one and took a big bite. It was so delicious! I am not sharing these!
