Georgie meets with his Editor...

Get this:

Over the Weekend, my Editor gave me a buzz. He politely asked if I’d consider seeing him in his Office Monday morning (that’s today, in case you didn’t know that. )

“Please stop by anytime, whenever it’s totally convenient for you, and fits comfortably into your buzzy schedule, of course,” he said.

For a minute there, I thought that maybee my Editor had started mellowing out over the Cold Season. Then he said, “On second thought, Bee, bee in my Office first thing Monday morning. Or Else.”


So I did that. When I got there, I couldn’t help but notice that he looked highly angry.


“Nobody trusts The Bee Times Gazette Journal Record…and Online News anymore,” he said.

“Well…yeah… that's beecause,” I started to say.

“Ever since we published that Special Insert that listed all the problems everybody has run into in this Stump, and listing Queen Jemima’s Questionable Promises to make Improvements on Day One,” he told me, “our Readership has taken a nose dive.”

“You mean,” I asked, “the Improvements that aren’t gonna happen? I’m sorry. I didn’t see that.”

“Bee that as it may, Bee, we have a Big Problem on our wings. Our Publication has been the Number One Sources for Sports and Information for the past very long time, and now, nobody beelieves anything we print.” He slammed his wing on his desk and buzzed superly loud, “THIS WILL NOT DO! I’m assigning YOU the job of FIXING this Problem, Bee - OR ELSE!”

I don’t know why my Editor is suddenly blaming ME for this Problem. Geeeeeeze. I just woke up. And what do I know about anything? Nothing, that’s what.

But okay fine, I’ll do it. After all, over the past few years, dozens of bees and Beeps (my Human Friends - you know who you are) have come to rely on me for a Dependable Viewpoint. How many relationships did I save and make happier with my “Dear Georgie” Column? I think the number is too high to count, probably.

And how many came to deeply depend on my highly accurate and insightful Reviews I provided in that “At The Movies with Georgie Bee” Thing? I don’t think it’s possible to calculate.

Anyway, I guess I hafta figure out some way to get the Swarm to beelieve the News of the Day - and I guess I’m the only bee who can bring Trustworthiness back to the News.

So I’m gonna go do that.

I’ll get back to you when I figure all of this out.

Let’s all bee careful out there.
