...All my life is just DESPAIR,
(Doggone that bear!)
When he takes me in his arrrrrrmmms,
The world is quite ALLLLLLL RIIIIIIIIIIGHT!!
*wipes brow, looks around, begins to mumble*
Daggumit! Where can that Benton be? Here I sit in total disarray, Miss Gaylee still out cold, a-lying next to me...Miss Paddletale's still feet-up over there...course that's probably a GOOD thing, else she'd be squawkin' and quackin' & scarin' the children have to death!
I can't lead this group outta here all by myself...I don't even know where we are. I musta run 3 miles while that bear was a-chasin' us. Don't know what in the WORLD Miss Gaylee was doin' way out here with this passel o' kids, anyway. And I must say, Miss Paddletale looks plumb silly with those flip-flops on her webbed footsies, and that showercap thingie on her head...lookit! It's clear down over her eyes...no wonder she was screechin' about the dark! An meanwhile, here we all sit in the middle o' nowhere, with nuthin' to eat but a handful of huckleberries...and lord knows, I DO like my vittles, sartain.
*sigh* I'm tired of hollerin' for Bent...he probably can't hear me, anyway...*mutter, mutter*...probably he's out to Bummpo's, havin' a mug of ale & enjoyin' the company of that Red-haired Lass. An' here I sit...lost...hungry...cold...still covered in sticky honey & bits of leafage & ferneries...afraid...miserable...did I say hungry???....
