6 Every house I visited so far had a TV, and I enjoyed watching some of the shows there. But the difference here, at the Thomases’ house, is that the television is on all the time. I couldn’t always hear the TV, because A. J.’s mother had a radio in the kitchen, which was always blaring, too. At the end, Mr. Thomas and Mrs. Thomas decided to keep it unplugged for a couple more days because they noticed that the kids were playing happily outside, and that they forgot about the TV. This decision made me so happy! And I promptly fell asleep. 38

7 I opened the lock on my cage and went out and walked quickly. Then, with great effort I pulled out the plug of the TV. The family didn’t know what to do without a TV. They stayed home together. Mr. Thomas talked about what he used to do when he was a kid. He told the kids stories and started to teach them card games. It was quiet for the first time! The next morning, the kids played cards and went out to play football. A. J. and his classmate Garth worked together to clean my cage. They also made a maze for me to play in. 5 6

8 I watched all the activities of the family. They watched TV all the time. They even had dinner in front of the TV. I couldn’t rest at all. Over the weekend, the TV and the radio were playing all the time. So I had this Big Idea! Mr. Thomas was sweeping behind the TV and discovered that it was unplugged. Mr. Thomas and Mrs. Thomas didn’t know how the TV became unplugged. Mr. Thomas tried to plug in the TV to make sure it was working. 47
