Of all of Dave's many hobbies, looking out the window is definitely one of his favorites. Despite spending his days indoors, he knows from experience that many important events take place outside. He watches leaves fall, investigates raindrops, and observes passersby intently. If something is going to pose a threat to Dave and his kingdom, he wants to know about it as soon as possible. He subscribes to a Mad-Eye Moody style of "constant vigilance!" He has just seen and experienced too much to be complacent, and his vigilance has prepared him well for many potentially dangerous situations. For example, his recent encounter with an ice cream truck occurred when Dave was looking out the window. Who knows what could have happened if Dave had been caught unawares?
