|"Vi, these club meetings are getting to me. I'm think you're the only one I can trust."
"Why do you think that?"
"Haven't you noticed Kit, she's out to get me. She wants to be the next club president. Her sneaky ways are influencing the other members. Teamwork isn't happening anymore, she has quite the following."
"Well, I heard rumors that she wants to be on the board. What do you mean her ways, what's she doing?"
"Stop and think about this past year, you'll see what I mean. I chaired two events, the "Food Drive" and the "Harvest-Fest." On the "Food Drive", she showed a lot of interest. She called before the meeting and I shared plans for a successful drive. I told her that we wanted the food on the curb, no door-to-door campaign. The next meeting all the members vetoed my plan. I suspected her, but didn't know for sure until the Harvest-Fest. The same thing happened, she took my suggestions to the members, like it was her idea.
"Yes, I see what you mean. So, what are you going to do?"
"Outsmart her. It took a while, but I came up with the perfect plan. I just handed her a copy of my ideas for "Crime Watch. Her eyes lit up, her mouth watered, and out the door she went. This is too good to be true. She's already made copies, handed them out and doesn't even know that she volunteered for permanent crime patrol. Gunshots, barking dogs and any suspicious noise will be her responsibility."
"I can't wait until the next meeting, just think Kit will finally be president, that is crime president. Old cliches get tiresome, but do you know that you are as sly as a fox?"
"Yes, that's because I am one."
