One of the highlights (for some) of dining at our house is that people are requested (meaning they have no choice) to read a story or two to Jack before bedtime. When Scarlett was here she and Jack both chose stories and we all got a turn. Stories a plenty. As first cab off the rank S held them in thrall with his delivery of Cat in the Hat.
By the time they got to me (lucky last) their attention was wandering (because it couldn't have been my technique surely?)
Sorry mum - know that's not the best pic but your expression says it all.
