Table - example

It was dinner time for one family and when they had finished cooking they dished up They gave a plateful to one of the boys who began to eat it from his lap when his dad said, "Please go and sit and eat at the table. What happens if you spill it down your clothes? Your poor mum has to spend time washing everything. What a shame! She needs to have a rest you know." "Alright then," the boy replied and grudgingly got up to the table.
