This story insists on being related by an omniscient narrator who sounds rather like Mr. Blackwell in an arch mood. I can't tell if this is actually entertaining, or merely twee.

But it's what I got.

Damn, this guy is a nasty piece of work. The narrator, I mean. Who is, incidentally, not a character in the story, but an omniscient voice. (Omniscient voices have personalities.) He is an arch-browed, condescending, scathing, smirking, ironical cat who says "as is doubtless evident," when what he really means is "you are too stupid to figure this out on your own."
