Battling For the Spotlight

Hu-Dad had a simple plan. Go outside, get a few photographs of Queen Natasha the Evil, and build a blog post around her. Little did he realize that someone else would be battling for the spotlight.

Who could possibly object to the Queen being the center of a blog post? Who would even dare to do so? It must be someone who has not thought through the consequences.

It should be me! Me! Me! Me! - battling for the spotlight

It should be me! Me! Me! Me!

Qannik? Come on, buddy, we dedicate a lot of blog posts to you. Besides, have you thought about how upset Queen Natasha might be if you steal her attention?

Oh. Oops.

Oh. Oops. Nevermind.

Q-Tip. But now the Queen is sulking that her camera time was taken. You have to be willing to be the model. Can’t you help the Hu-Dad?

I just remembered I had somewhere else to be.
