>check phone
I don't know the word "check".

>pick up phone
You lunge for it, but the room spins nauseatingly away. The floor gives you a light tap on the forehead.

>leave my house
Did you have any particular direction in mind?

>south
You miss the doorway by a good eighteen inches. The wall jostles you rather rudely.

Bedroom
The bedroom is a mess.
It is a small bedroom with a faded carpet and old wallpaper. There is a washbasin, a chair, and a window with the curtains drawn. Near the exit leading south is a phone.
There is a flathead screwdriver here.
There is a toothbrush here.

>inventory
You have:
a splitting headache
no tea

You wake up. The room is spinning very gently round your head. Or at least it would be if you could see it which you can't.

It is pitch black.

Good start to the day. Pity it's going to be the worst one of your life. The light is now on.

Bedroom, in the bed
The bedroom is a mess.
It is a small bedroom with a faded carpet and old wallpaper. There is a washbasin, a chair with a tatty dressing gown slung over it, and a window with the curtains drawn. Near the exit leading south is a phone.
There is a flathead screwdriver here. (outside the bed)
There is a toothbrush here. (outside the bed)

>Take my gown and put it on
You used the word "put" in a way that I don't understand.

>Take gown
You can't reach it from the bed. The effort almost kills you.

>Look out the window and survey surroundings
I don't know the word "survey".

>look out window
You can't reach it from the bed. The effort almost kills you.

>Pick up toothbrush
It slips through your fumbling fingers and hits the carpet with a nerve-shattering bang.

>Pick up screwdriver
You lunge for it, but the room spins nauseatingly away. The floor gives you a light tap on the forehead.

Very difficult, but you manage it. The room is still spinning. It dips and sways a little.

>Look.

Remember this game is from 1984! Always try to use simple commands to not confuse the interpreter.

>Carefully pick up toothbrush
I don't know the word "carefully".

>get toothbrush
You're certainly picking the tough tasks. The floor acts like a trampoline on an ice rink, or like something they've been working on for years at Disneyland.

>get screwdriver
It slips through your fumbling fingers and hits the carpet with a nerve-shattering bang.

>look outside window
As you part your curtains you see that it's a bright morning, the sun is shining, the birds are singing, the meadows are blooming, and a large yellow bulldozer is advancing on your home.

>take gown
Luckily, this is large enough for you to get hold of. You notice something in the pocket.

>get dressed
You are now wearing your gown.

>Go through exit
You used the word "exit" in a way that I don't understand.

>Investigate pocket
I don't know the word "investigate".

>examine pocket
The dressing gown is faded and battered, and is clearly a garment which has seen better decades. It has a pocket which is closed, and a small loop at the back of the collar.

>Use Exit to the south
I don't know the word "use".

>south
You miss the doorway by a good eighteen inches. The wall jostles you rather rudely.
