Louis requested to change which direction he lays on his bed. His argument was that the light gets in his eyes the way he sleeps now.
I tried to explain that if he faces the window (rather than having his pillow under the window as it is now), the light would be in his eyes even worse.
No, no. He was talking about the girls’ reading lamps, not about the sunlight through the window.
I lay on his bed in his proposed new orientation to explain how even the girls’ reading lamps were more likely to be in his eyes that way.
“Oh,” he replied, undaunted. “That’d be fine.”
