Harry Benjamin is a Child Prodigy

Postby Bouncy Castle » Fri Jul 20, 2012 1:10 pm

Amazing.

He's managed to get hold of a signed copy of Ben Aaronovitch's latest book ("Kindles suck, so I bought you a book instead"), wrapped it up all nice and neat, and taken it to the local Post Office and sent it to me, along with a very neatly written note, and a photo of his goodself.

Wow, what a boy!

Thanks Harry.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Sorry I just had a brain flash of baby Harry pretending to be all floppy and baby-like as he's tucked into the cot then (cue Mission Impossible music) waiting til you and Mrs Pip are asleep, the house in darkness, a rope with a hook flies over the side of the cot, Harry hoist himself up hand over hand, slips down the stairs, spiderman-like climbs the bookcase, looks around, grabs the book, leaps down, wraps the book with a penlight held in his mouth, slips out the house to the postbox, posts the parcel, runs back up the street, shimmies up the drainpipe and through the open window in his room, back into the cot, slips the rope and hook back under his mattress and pulls his cuddly blankie back under his chin JUST as you appear in the room to check he is sleeping soundly.
