"Hello, Hazel here," said the happy-go-lucky hammerhead shark into her phone.
"Winnie! How are you? What's happening?"
"Is that Winnie? Is it true about her and Thomas?" called Davey from across the dressing room. She and her brothers Dicky and Danny swam over and hovered closely by.
"Hopping high, you say. . .Huh, say that again? The Daffodils are being quite hyper right now. . .
"We are not!" said Danny, splashing a bit huffily. "Shhh," Dicky said to his brother.
"Hoooo Hooo Hoooo!" Hazel turned to the triplets. "Winnie and Thomas are getting hitched."
"Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah!"
Hard pounding knocks on the dressing room door hushed the performers. Through the door, they heard "Five minutes to show time!"
"Winnie, we are so very happy for you!. . .Can you hear the Daffodils? They're all heedless with joy. . . Honey, the show is about to start. Let me call . . .Really? You want me to perform the Hawaiian Wedding Song dance?. . .I would be honored to do the hula for you and Thomas at your wedding. I'm humbled. . .Yes, yes, I'll call you tonight. Give your sweetheart a huge 'hear-hear' from us. Love you!"
Hazel and the Daffodils hugged each other, hardly containing their joy. They twirled harum-scarum around each other as they headed out the door for their first performance of the day at the Honalee Bay Aquarium.
Oh, happy days! A wedding celebration is on the horizon for the ABC Wednesday creatures. Stay tuned.
