3V0932.02 Bouncing imagined; nonstandard pronoun usage (8/11/80)

Peggy listened with the toy telephone at her ear then put it down.
“Mrs. Gonan. I go to she’s house and bounce on trampoline.” Thus Peggy
recalled and imagined an activity which has been the ideal realization
of one of her favorite activities, bouncing. For months now, it seems,
whenever she can get someone to permit it, she climbs onto my bed
and bounces. Standing, she bounces three, four, or more times, lifts
her legs, landing on her bum and rolling over. Her favorite time for
this is when I go to bed (and thus can keep her from bouncing off the
bed since I don’t keep her from bouncing ON it.)
