11.

The other night, Charlie pretended that the netted bag—the bag that holds the bath toys and hangs between the duck’s faces that are suctioned to the bathroom tiles—he pretended that this netted bag was a blue bottle.
He chased himself around the bath with it, shouting, “Be careful of the tail! The tail is going to sting you!”
Eventually, he believed himself. His shouts became panicked, and then he was sobbing, “Get me out of here! There’s a blue bottle! Get me out of here!”, reaching up with both arms, scrambling into the big, white towel.
