He is SO irritating! I tell him what to do and he does more than he is instructed. I tell him, go to the stable, get the horse, and lead him out of there. What does he do? He goes to the stable, gets the horse, and decides to put on a saddle. Not what I said! He’s done it again with the princess. I said, go and get the princess, wake her and lead her out of there, and what does he do? He lets her get dressed!
I know I’m just a little green frog, but if he doesn’t listen to me this time, and do EXACTLY what I say, he will always been lonely, and I will always be a frog!
