LOOKING FOR SOMETHING
Father : Harry where are you?
Harry : Iâ€™m here in my room, father.
Father : what are you doing there?
Harry : Iâ€™ m doing my homework.
Father : Okay, continue doing it. Where is your sister?
Harry : I think she is in the kitchen father.
Father : is she having her breakfast?
Harry : No, father. She has already had her breakfast.
Father : Then whatâ€™s she doing?
Harry : Oh, sheâ€™s helping mother prepare lunch.
Father : Are they both in the kitchen:
Harry : I think so. Can I help you father.
Father : Yes. Iâ€™ve been looking for my pen. Donâ€™t know where it is? Have you
seen it or taken it? Itâ€™s not on my table and it isnâ€™t in my shirt pocket,
Harry : Itâ€™s not with me. I havenâ€™t seen it. It must be in the drawer of your table.
: Let me look for it. (Opens the drawer and looks for it) itâ€™s not in the
drawer, either. Mary might have taken it. Let me ask her. Mary, have you
taken fatherâ€™s pen? Heâ€™s looking for it.
Mary : Yes, Iâ€™ve been using it. Itâ€™s on my table. Please take it from there and
give it to father. Iâ€™m busy in the kitchen.
Father : I wonder why everyone keeps taking my pen. Now that Iâ€™ve found my
pen, where are my glasses? I donâ€™t suppose anyone needs themâ€¦or has
someone started using them as well? Anybody needs them, or has
somebody started using them, too?
Harry : They arenâ€™t on your table. They arenâ€™t in the drawer, either. Are they in
your shirt pocket? Let me check. No, they arenâ€™t there, either.
Father : everything gets misplaced in this house. It is a shame I have to hunt for
everything. Havenâ€™t I told you all not to touch my things?
Harry : Your glasses could be on the table in the sitting-room. Have you looked
Father Yes. Iâ€™ve looked everywhere. Everything else is there except my glasses.
A place for everything and everything in its placeâ€™, is what I believe in.
Harry : Oh! Father, you not only believe in it but also practice it. Your are much
in their place as you said.
Father : What do you mean by in their place? Where are they?
Harry : They are on your nose father right of your eyes.
Father : Oh how silly of me! MY goodness! It is almost ten! Now I must be off
to the office.
