Oh Daddy! When are we going to get to the Hippo?
Which Hippo son?
The Hippo, the Hippo in the story!
Patience my boy, there’s plenty of time. The Hippo comes near the end.
Well let’s go straight to the end then!
Why do you want to wish the story away? Aren’t you enjoying it?
Yes, but we can always go back.
That, son, is something we can never do.
