A Passing Interaction Between a Resting Dragonfly And The Grass On a Summery Afternoon:

Grass: (shyly) Hi there.  May I ask what you're reading?  

Dragonfly:  Well  I don't see how it's any of your business, but I happen to be trying to read the words on this napkin.  I'm doing a study on hygenicological lexicography.


Grass:  I - I don't believe those are words.  I've seen a few napkins in my day, and I think those might be just decorative markings.  

Dragonfly:  Excuse me!  I am a learned insect belonging to the order Odonata, suborder Epiprocta, and, in the strict sense, infraorder Anisoptera!  Perhaps you are confusing me with the easily confuzzled Damselflies, eh?  I THINK I KNOW LETTERS WHEN I SEE THEM!!!

. . . 

. . . 

. . . 

Grass:  you look like that funny-looking human.

Dragonfly: what funny looking  -   I don't see what you're quacking on about . . . 

Human (Diana) :  they didn't have any sugar so you have to mix your own in - - Hey it's a dragonfly!  You know how you catch them?  By grasping their wings!  

Dragonfly:  < flies away in a slight bit of a rush >  

Grass:  :)
