Peepers, are you payin' attention? Are you listenin'? More importantly, are you listenin' to ME? I said...
What's that? What's that, Peepers? What's that you're babblin' on about now?
I don't care what that ol' calendar says. Not sure if you've noticed or not, but the calendar is old. Old as in OLD. Not as old as you, of course, on account of your bein' as old as the hills, but it's still pretty old. It's been hangin' on the wall for almost a year now. More than ten months. Like I said, IT'S OLD.
Peepers, Peepers, Peepers... My gosh you're slow on the uptake, these days. Comes with old age, I suppose. The calendar is wrong. It's spring.
You wanna bet? You wanna bet that I'm wrong? I mean, you wanna bet that I'm right? No, wait... I AM right. I'LL bet that I'm right. You can bet... whatever, but I bet by the end of the day you, too, will be bettin' I'm right 'cause if not, you're gonna lose that bet.
The bet that I'm wrong, that is. I mean, the bet that you THINK that I'm wrong on account of my never bein' wrong and my always bein' right. Right? Right.
Lookie here, Peepers. I don't know what you're goin' on about.
Plus, James - the kitty you're tryin' to convince to come live with us - didn't come for brekkies yesterday and I'm pretty sure he was wanderin' about lookin' for girls or somethin', thinkin' it was spring. I MEAN, KNOWIN' it was spring, on account of yesterday also bein' in the twenties which is the kind of weather we have in...
Well, you know...
I DON'T CARE if there are no spring flowers out there. And I don't care that instead of the trees burstin' with the promise of new leaves, they're actually clingin' to a few old brown ones that haven't yet fallen. AND I DON'T CARE that the leaves that HAVE fallen are blowin' about askin' to be raked and stuff. None of that matters. Oh sure, I know that kinda stuff normally happens in the fall but do you know what else happens in the fall, Peepers? DO you?
It gets cold. Yup, it gets cold in the fall, Peepers. And for your information, 23C is not cold. It's mild. It's warm! By gosh and by golly, it's practically vergin' on hot.
So like I said...
What? WHAT? Seriously? You say it's goin' down to 2C in the next couple of days?
Well that's kinda odd.
Wrong, that is.
Remember to mask up, too.
