Have you ever been ignored by someone you care about? You wait, hopeful for conversation, and … nothing.
I told Floyd, “My name’s Flossie. How are you?” But he was so snooty. He just flew to a nearby tree and ignored me. Let me tell you, I was hurt.
I was seriously doubting myself. Having a confidence meltdown. I couldn’t figure out what was wrong. Why didn’t he like me? He was so unfriendly. Just stuck his nose in the air. He was fine as long as HE was talking, but as soon as I said something, he flew off.
Then I had a thought. I … er … I … hadn’t had a bath in a while.
I checked my pits. Hmmm…. Got myself tidied up and as I sat there waiting, I realized that when I introduced myself, he must have thought I said my name was Floozie, not Flossie.
Well, now we wait … and we’ll see. I should wait a few minutes before I call him back. Wait until my feathers aren’t so ruffled. But still, what a nerve of him to be so rude.
Flossie Flicker’s feelings hurt,
Floyd has treated her like dirt,
When he talks about his day,
He expects to have his say.
But when Flossie wants to yack,
All he does is turn his back.
Flossie is so insecure,
Not so confident, not sure.
Then she spruces up her look,
Waits for Floyd and sets the hook,
“My name’s Flossie! It’s not Floozie!
Goodness gracious! Floyd’s a doozie.”
