3 days later
Appa, if you don’t get me a slate, I am not going to eat dinner
Ok, don’t eat! Now don’t disturb me
Next day morning
I will not eat breakfast, I’ve been asking you for a slate for so many days
Mother intervenes. Why don’t you tell him you will get him a slate, I don’t want him to starve like this.
Ok son, I will get you a slate
Next day
Appa, where is my slate?
What slate??
