Mummy, can I have dinner in my room tonight?
We don’t usually do that, Bean, unless you’re so sick you can’t get out of bed.
Well, I am certainly sick – I actually came home early today.
Yes, but you’ve been working on projects happily for about 3 hours, with nary a complaint.
That’s my point! I am very creative today and I do not think I should be interrupted.
Honestly, it would be dangerous to stop.
