I’m stripping my house down in readiness for repair and painting. I’ll describe the process in the style of a Dick and Jane reading primer.
Look, Dick, look. Look at the empty room.
I see the room, Jane. The room is empty.
Sit, Dick, sit.
I will sit, Jane. I will sit on the floor.
Do you remember the pictures Dick?
No, Jane, I don’t remember the pictures.
Do you remember the decorations Dick?
No, Jane, I don’t remember the decorations.
Remember, Dick, remember.
I can’t remember, Jane.
How do you feel in the empty room, Dick?
I feel good in the empty room, Jane.
What do you miss in the empty room, Dick.
I don’t miss anything in the empty room.
What about the others? What will they say about the empty room?
Others will ask why the room is empty.
What will we tell them, Dick?
We like the empty room. The others will like it , too.
Oh, Dick. Funny, funny Dick.
