From Toby’s Journal:
My big friend spends a lot of time sitting at his desk. He has many strange windows that he stares at, and there are all kinds of surfaces with many little springy pads with marks on them.
I’ve watched him and I know my big friend can control a little pointy mark that lets him do things to things in the windows. I like to chase it.
He can even make one of these windows appear on the wall, and he can control a giant sized pointy mark there and sometimes I get to chase it.
Today I rested on one of the pads because it was warm. And then the pointy mark began to move! I know my big friend was not making it happen, but he got very excited when he started watching me, and he got out his eye machine.
I’m not sure exactly what all the machines on his desk do, but if they do what I want them to do so easily, they must do all sorts of things for my friend.
