“I made a drawing for you,” said my godson to my mother.
“What is it?” my mother asked.
“Eh, I don’t know” he said. “I guess it’s a camel. But the camel goes very fast. That’s why you can't see him.”

Yesterday I took my godson to my mother. It turned out to be an enchanting afternoon.
I told my mother that I would leave for Iraq soon, but she was very much distracted by my godson.
