Special measures now in force
September 11, 2012

We’ve come to this mutually acceptable agreement.
D did try to confuse the matter by grabbing the pen and drawing beds and toilets and arrows in places they shouldn’t be, but I think we’ve managed to retain the essential messages.

Man and machine

Me: Hurry up and brush your teeth!

D: I’ve got an idea that’s going to make it quicker; I’m building a machine! This is my machine:
You hold a cup under the tap and it catches the water. Then you dip your toothbrush in the cup, and then you clean your teeth – superfast! It’s called ‘SpeedyTeeth’. [Brushes teeth]
…How quick was that? Was it just in one minute?

Me: Yes.

D: Now I’m going to build a machine for getting dressed quickly. You might remember this machine… [Lays his clothes and shoes out in the shape of a person.]
Do you remember it?

Me: Yes.

D: Yeah – you know this machine – it’s called ‘Invisible Man Dress that Comes Alive and Gets Dressed’ – it makes me get dressed quicker [climbs into clothes].
Top…Trousers… Oh man – I forgot my pants and socks in the machine!
