Bright Glare Of Royalty

When Hu-Dad suggested Typhoon could hurry up, he received the bright glare of royalty from our Princely Little Curmudgeon.

A look of disbelief from the Little Prince

Hu-Dad mumbles something about busyness he has to do and looming deadlines, but that has little impact on our helpfulness. Just yesterday, Hu-Dad told His Royal Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey to hurry up and come inside. The shocked look you see above was the response. We call it the bright glare of royalty. Guess who won that staring match.
