[ti-] Timmy Turner is [2] inside the living room of the [-_] house where he is building a 堤 dike in the middle of the carpet. He has wished for a magic 正 pointer and he uses that to move 土 soil around to form a large 堤 dike that divides the middle of the room. Then he wishes for a 日 sun to slowly dry the wet 土 soil cementing his 堤 dike. Afterwards he plans to flood half the house and keep the other half dry with his new 堤 dike.
