Aaawww! says Irving, that's a picture of me. Somebody is in bed with a little lamp on the side, with little chachkas, or whatever you call it and a lot of pillows around the little boy in bed and a picture of a dog hanging aside on the wall, continues Irving. A little girl or boy in bed, says Myrtle and they want him to see the light so they brought in a puppy to let him get strength. They brought it at the bedside. A woman is in bed waiting for her husband to come, says Ana. She wants to go dancing with him. A little boy being punished and sent to bed, says Marie. His parents sent him to bed because he went outside to play, says Ana. NO! Says Marie. He was being naughty. Irving adds he didn't do nothing, he's sick and in bed and has medicine on the table a glass with 2 plates and medicine in the glass. I think he's sick says Myrtle. He's a sick little boy and they bring him the light. Irving then begins to sing "by the light.... of the silvery moon....".
His name is Damien. He has a father and has a mother and sisters and brothers. Maybe the family works and they get somebody to take care of Damien. The family has to work. One is a carpenter and the other is a teacher. The mother has to go out to work to get money. Ana replies, he has a lady, named Sophia, Damien calls her Sophie,to take care of him. They like to go out to play.
Damien is sad. I don't know why but he's sad. He's a sick boy, adds Myrtle, a sick boy. He wants to go out to play and his parents wouldn't let him says, Ana. Marie responds he wants to be left alone and go to sleep.
Addie thinks it takes place in one of the local cities, say Brooklyn. There is a puppy dog at the boys feet, let's call him Rin Tin Tin. He's a little dog, white, he likes to jump around with his curly hair and says Ruff, Ruff, Ruff, Ruff per Myrtle. Damien needs a friend so the little puppy dog can jump around his bed and say Ruff Ruff.
Myrtle says, Damien may get a little better that he can, you know, talk to his family or a friend, shake their hands. Damien likes to jump rope with his friends. He has a lot of friends that are girls and boys and they run and play with him. His best friend is named Rosie. Rosie wants to see Damien move around so they can go out and play together. She's a girl, Rosie is a girl. They like to go to the beach. Marie says they are to young. Addie adds they will just have to sit in the house and watch television. They both like the dog people on TV. The dogs on TV bark, and Damien and Rosie like to hear the barking. Rin Tin Tin, Damien's pet, barks back.
Damien and Rosie shut the TV off and went to eat dinner in the kitchen. They like to eat hotdogs. Hotdogs! After dinner they sit and talk together and then Rosie went home.
