Henry Has Reason To Be Concerned.

This morning, I got up early and let Mr. Happy sleep in. I sat down in front of the computer and picked up the needles. I was knitting away when I heard an accusatory "Ahem".

Henry is upset.

Doesn't he look like he's saying, "Just what is going on here?"

"Look, Henry, " I explained, "You aren't the only monster in my imagination. This is Albert. He wants to enter the real world. He might not be done today, but I'm starting today, Ok?"

Henry gave me a look.

"It's not like he's going to live with us. I think he'll be moving out West."

Henry snorted.

"You may not think so right now, but eventually, Albert might become your friend."

I tried to make him understand. I played all my cards: Albert seems like a nice monster. Albert will look up to you. Albert will want to be like you. Albert will ask you for advice. Albert will be a great playmate. I think I had some good points about Albert.

Henry has reason to be upset.

Henry remains unconvinced.


  1. You should warn Henry that if he keeps his arms crossed like that they'll stay that way (not so good for extreme sports).

  2. Albert looks a little deflated from Henry's rejection.

    Looking forward to seeing Albert come to life...

  3. Goodness, I think Henry is nervous 'cus he knows purple is Mauve's favourite colour...
