Cue the narrator

Henry recently started narrating his adventures as they happen.

"Suddenly, he leapt out of the darkness..."

Which is cute, but often spoils his advantage of surprise in an attack.

Here's my favourite narration to date. He was pretending to be a squirrel.

Henry: He came bounding through the branches to speak to the hiker. Hello, Hiker.

Erin: Hello, Squirrel. How are you?

Henry: Very exhausted.

Erin: Why? Has your squirrel father been forcing you to pick too many nuts?

Henry: He has.

Me: We have quotas. How do you expect me to fill them?


Henry: No one answered.
