He was good for a bit but then he started reading the book. Actually reading the words out loud. Slowly. He couldn’t read and it was a newer book we hadn’t read to him yet. It wasn’t memorization. I asked him how he knew what it said and he replied “my friend John is telling me”. Scared the shit out of me.
