in toby’s head

Our friend Arwen is visiting from England for a few days. She came along to Toby’s swimming class last night, and on the way there he was talking and talking to her about all kinds of things which are important to boys who are almost five: dinosaurs, sharks, space rockets, superheroes etc, in no particular order and at considerable speed, with every other sentence starting with “and do you know what?”

After some time of this, and a lot of suppressed laughter from the grown-ups, Arwen said “Toby, what is it like inside your head?” The reply: “Well, do you know what? There are lots of pictures spinning around, and a cell in my brain catches a picture and another one clicks on it, and then that is what I decide that I’m going to talk about.”
