Shut up, Hansel and keep walking. For the life of me I can't imagine that you actually threw crumbs on the ground, and expected them not to be swallowed up on sight by some sorry little critter following a numbskull like you.
And stop shushing me..if you had listened to me, we would have ducked out of the house at the very crack of dawn before Papa, and that Joan Rivers look alike decided to take us for an early morning walk in the woods. Did you really think that we were going to practise for the Boston Marathon?
Kids like us throw pebbles on the ground, not crumbs, when they're being lured to their doom by their dumb old man and greedy stepmother. And now you're just walking in circles and of course it's up to me to rescue us, as usual.
Whoa...will you look at that! Nice little cottage, a bit shabby chic, but.. Sort of like "before", on an HGTV makeover, if you know what I mean. A little corny, all those chintzy curtains, but look, a candle in the window! A nice homey touch. Well, beggars can't be...you know what...
I must be dreaming..this is one of those gingerbread houses that kids like us stumble upon from time to time. Have a bite of this window sill..sort of like a Hershey bar. Look, there's a nice little old lady opening the door.
Smile, Hansel, take your hands out of your pockets, wave, and let me do the talking. She's probably got something special for us! Don't be so Grimm.
