Three days after Jack Parsons started taking Rostaventrol, he started speaking in sentences. Out of the blue he said to his mother who had just come home from the shops, ‘Hello Mum; did you get any fish fingers for me?’
She dropped her shopping with surprise and the said packet of fish fingers shot across the floor much to Jack’s amusement. At bed time, he turned to the sound of a dog barking next door and said, ‘That doggie is sad. He wanted to meet his friends in the park but Bernie was too busy to take him’.
His Mum put it down to a vivid imagination, but as the week wore on Jack was interpreting bird song, the chatter of monkeys on a children’s TV programme and, most impressive of all, whale song on a nature programme: ‘The daddy whale is telling his family to stop playing games and follow him to a good place for food’. He wasn’t so sure about the monkeys but guessed that it was boasting about who could run fastest. As for the bird song, he correctly interpreted that two robins were arguing territorial rights or as the small boy said, ‘He’s saying “this is my garden so you stay away”’.
