We were busy cutting out paper dolls; but we soon wearied of this amusement, and after cutting up our shoestrings and clipping all the leaves off the honeysuckle that were within reach, I turned my attention to Martha's corkscrews.
"Dad," Jonathan said, "When we get the new baby, where will we put him when we ride in the car?"
I guess my life isn't very interesting to other people, but Alex and I like the way we live.
And this man was saying we were going to the moon in a rocket ship made of metals we hadn't even invented.
We commonly do not remember that it is, after all, always the first person that is speaking.
