One Misty, Moisty Morning

For his third birthday, Addison received from his Aunt Christy and Uncle Barry Richard Scarry's Best Storybook Ever. It's a treasure trove of various stories and old English nursery rhymes, which Addison has taken to memorizing thanks to his father, who has exhibited tremendous enthusiasm in reciting these silly ditties every evening. For your viewing pleasure, here is a dramatic recitation of one of his favorites, oh so appropriate for Aberdeen.

One misty, moisty, morning,
When cloudy was the weather,
There I met an old man
All clothed in leather
All clothed in leather,
With a cap under his chin.
How do you do? And how do you do? And how do you do again?

I have this exact book still from my childhood. It sits on Patrick and Betsy's book shelf. It is a treasure, but this young man of yours is much much more.
I want to squeeze him!
