Xuxa the Xantus's Hummingbird


"Agathe, welcome! Thank you for coming all this way," said Xuxa the Xantus's hummingbird, meeting her heavily breathing friend at the top of the high knoll outside of the Honalee Bay Aquarium and Garden.

"Xuxa, dear, you look lovely as usual." Agathe the Aardvark blew kisses as she readjusted her red hat.

"Oooh, the photos do not do justice to how chic and pert your hat is."

Xuxa twirled as she would on a fashion show catwalk. Blowing kisses to Agathe, she said "Merci beaucoup for my red Parisian beret. I love, love, love it."

Agathe and Xuxa sat in the shade where the Xantus's hummingbird had placed water and snacks. Agathe sighed contently, taking in the changing landscape from the canyon to the distant mountains. "I do love your view, Xuxa. I must come and visit you more often."

"Anytime. You have carte blanche in our meadow," said Xuxa. She pointed to the mound by Agathe. "Fresh termites, Love?"

While Agathe satisfied her appetite, the two old girlfriends spoke about this and that, he and she, giggles and oh my's, and, of course, the wedding of Thomas and Winnie.

"Speaking of the wedding, let's talk about what you want us, hummers, to do," said Xuxa to Agathe who was the wedding planner.

"I need you, Xya, Xenia, Xander, and Xui-mei to be my eyes and ears from the morning of the dress rehearsal to the end of the reception. And, if necessary, relay messages to servers, vendors, and wedding party members that need to know or do something tout de suite."

"Easy-peasy. This being a very big wingding, I shall need to recruit 10 to 20 more hummers to help us."

"No problem. We plan to have so much nectar, it'll be coming out of our ears. Well, your ears."  The old friends laughed.

"Fourteen more days to the wedding!" chirped Xusa. Agathe sighed.
