SCENE 1
Telly tells Savion and Jaya why he's upset: he packed up to spend the night at his friend Malcolm's house, but his mommy told him not to pack his favorite blankie, which he calls "Softie." Savion asks why he needs Softie, and Telly comes up with a reason: to show Malcolm's little sister what shapes look like. He has Jaya help out by folding the blanket into a rectangle, a square, then a triangle.

SCENE 2
Savion thinks he knows why Telly's mom forbade him to pack Softie: maybe she thinks Telly's getting too old to be seen holding a blankie. Telly panics at the thought of leaving Softie at home, and comes up with other uses for Softie: a dinner napkin (though Malcolm's mom might have napkins), a rain hat in case it rains (though they'll most likely be indoors), or a pretend cave.
