I wonder if I’ve been changed in the night? Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I’m not the same, the next question is ‘Who in the world am I?’ Ah, that’s the great puzzle!
Speak English! I don’t know the meaning of half those long words, and I don’t believe you do either!

A cat may look at a king. I’ve read that in some book, but I don’t remember where.
I think I should understand that better, if I had it written down: but I can’t quite follow it as you say it.
