Oh, he is lovely, his name is Eric Jimmy Paul. Half his head is on the counter pane. He could be sick, he has measles. He doesn’t look sick. He does have a family. He is in his bed at home. His family are in another part of the home. Once he gets over the measles he would be OK. He should have his family with him. His family are all coming in and out. Poor little fellow, he is not very old, about 4 years. They shouldn’t leave him. The mother has work to do, she comes in and out, she should stay with him. He would feel very lonely. I bet he does. You stay with him. He asked his mother for something to eat and she has gone to get it. We would give him a nice piece of cake and fruit, something he likes. He has a dog as a pet. The dog’s name is Sooty. He is looking up things. He is sitting up in the bed and he is happy. They are getting rid of the dog and they are going to sell it. They might want some money. They bought a new one. They have just put the little boy in bed and they are cranky about it. We like it but wouldn’t swing it around the house. The little boy stays there. He feels better and hops out of bed.
