In the middle of last month, Miss Dash stopped asking for stories. It was just like a switch going off. One day, she just didn't ask for stories. She did not ask for them at breakfast or during any other routine. That was very strange at first. I've been telling stories, non-stop, for three or four years.
Sometimes she does ask for as story, but that's now much rarer.
So, I must conclude that an era has come to an end. I may be wrong, but I doubt it. I think that stories will still be asked for at times, but those times have just grown far fewer.
