A person who could master “yes” and “no,” I reasoned, could have the world at his feet. He wouldn’t even have to say the words—he could nod, tap his foot, rub his tummy, pat his head, stick out his tongue. My methodology was to find things I knew he wanted or didn’t want and trick him into answering. So I became a monster of questioning. I’d shoot questions at him like a panicky machine gunner. ” “That Bugs Bunny! ” On and on I went. We knew about many of his preferences because he’d eat or not eat, play with or not play with things presented to him.

I grabbed Davy by the shoulders and said, “Stay right here. ” but he continued racing away from me. Overtaking him a few yards before he reached the edge of the water, I started snarling and growling threats in his ear and yanking him by the arm. “You must never run away like that. You have to stay with me.
