You’re a Yellow-Bellied Marmot

A Conversation

“You’re yella’.”
“I’m not yellow. I just don’t want to fight you.”
“Yella’, yella’, yella'”
“I’m just going to ignore you.”
“Like you could, you yellow-bellied marmot.”
“I saw one of those once.”
“A yellow-bellied marmot. Just standing there on a rock.”
“Probably looked a lot like you.”
“Not really.”
“All pudgy-faced and full of fear.”
“Actually, it yawned.”
“You probably bored it with your pudgy face.”
“I think it had better things to do.”
“Like what?”


“Looking for better company.”
