Small but Fierce

Dad Red: Well that’s interesting.

Mom Red: [sips coffee] Who’s ahead?

DR: The hummingbird by two.

TXRed [coming in the front door]: Helloooo.

MR: We’re watching the hummingbird.

TXR [wends way to back window] What’s he doing?

DR: Drinking from the oak tree and beating up a wren.

MR: A wren, two doves, and a robin.

TXR: [watches small blur assaulting any red flower in the yard] Well, he did chase those sparrows off this summer, and drove the doves and a robin away from the bird bath.

DR: He can beat up sparrows any time he wants.

TXR: Point.
