When Crayfish Woke Up


Crayfish is very insulted that we have been calling him "it". He thinks he should be called "he". In order to change words from "it" to "he", all you have to do is put an h at the beginning. Ukt, "it has come". Hukt, "he has come". Do Crayfish a favor and read all the sentences in chapters 3 and 4 again, this time saying "he" instead of "it".

Crayfish's wife is also insulted. Why should we talk about "it" and "him"? She would like us to talk about her for awhile. We can change "it" to "she" by adding k to the beginning. Kukt, "she has come". Crayfish's wife does different things.
