“I should go to play now. If I go out and play, my stomach will bounce – like this,” demonstrating how it will bounce, “and the pain will go away.”

“No, no, no. I know very well about stomach pain. I used to have a lot of nasty stomach pains when I was little. If you go out to play, your tummy will bounce and you will throw up. So you should lie down and take rest. Now go, take rest. Go, go.”

“I think my stomach pain is gone now.”
“Very good. Go finish your breakfast.”
