Blogging from A to Z April Challenge
Yolanda the Yakky Yak
She didn’t grunt, she didn’t moan, she didn’t bawl, and she didn’t cry. Yolanda just went yak, yak, yak all day long and sometimes half the night.
The big herd to which she belonged tried several times to tame her yakking and engage Yolanda in real conversation, but Yolanda didn’t take kindly to interruption or debate or correction or any other attempt to interrupt or dominate.
“Yak, yak, yak, yak,” on and on she’d go.
“Yolanda, here’s what I think—”
“Yak, yak, don’t interrupt,” she’d say.
“But Yolanda, you don’t know what you’re—”
“Yak, yak, I know better than you.”
“Yolanda, stop, you’re driving us crazy and—”
“Yakkity yak, don’t talk back."
The rest of the herd decided Yolanda wasn’t worth the trouble, so they all learned to tune her out. She was so busy yakking that she didn’t even notice no one was listening.
