Jimmy was five years old and his brother，Billy，was only a baby. One morning his mother waited for an important telephone call for hours，but nobody called. There was no bread in the house and she had to go out to buy some. Jimmy stayed at home to look after the baby. When the mother was out，the telephone rang and Jimmy answered.
Mr. Baker：Hello!May I speak to Mrs. White?
Jimmy：Sorry，Mother is out.
Mr. Baker：Well，when she comes back，say to her，'Mr. Baker called.'
Mr. Baker：Mr. Baker. Write it down. B-A-K-E-R.

Mr. Baker：How do I write…?Listen，little boy，is there anybody else with you?Any brothers or sisters?
Jimmy：Yes，my brother Billy is here.
