If you think Typhoon’s insistence on backward facing during hikes is strange, you have not seen the weird walking he can accomplish upside down.
Mid-way through yesterday’s walk, Typhoon outdid himself. Oh, sure, he had walked backward as he so often does, but yesterday he tried upside down. Yes, he threw himself onto his back and slithered along the grass.
Hu-Dad tried to explain to him that this does not qualify as a walk unless his feet were touching the ground, but the Little Prince argued that movement was the point. Chalk this one up for the Little Prince being the Little Prince.
