Mum: Well, where is Mike? (Mike enters the room.) Oh, here he is. Have you washed your hands?
Mike: I'm sorry, I haven't.
Mum: I've told you many times that you should wash your hands before you have dinner.
Mike: Excuse me, Mum (Mike sits down at the table and takes bread with a fork).
Mum: You know, Mike, you shouldn't take bread with a fork. Sit straight, please and help yourself to the soup. (Mike is eating the soup and is trying to read a book.). How can you read when you eat?
Mike: But I have washed my hands.
