1 "What are you playing with?" Jamelle asked his neighbor Toby.
2 "Silly Putty," Toby said simply, while forming a gummy substance into a ball.
3 "I've never heard of Silly Putty," Jamelle said.
4 "Grandma says it's been around since 1950," Toby said.
5 "No kidding!"
6 "She said that she played with it a lot when she was a little girl."
7 "What do you do with it?" Jamelle asked.
8 Instead of responding, Toby began to do different things with the Silly Putty. He rolled it into a ball and bounced it on the sidewalk. He stretched it out, making it look like a long string. Then he rolled it back into a ball again, and they tossed it back and forth.
9 "Can I play with it for a minute?" Jamelle asked.
