Sippy Cup Hoffman

Of all of the things that he has genetically inherited, Lil Sippy Cup's slight disregard for authority has, for obvious reasons, proven itself to be the most problematic.

When he is able to combine this revolutionary streak with his developing sarcastic wit, it is a recipe for disaster.

Yesterday, in a moment of exasperated weakness, we had the following exchange.

Me: "If I hear another word out of you little man, you're going to be punished.  Not one more word!"

Lil Sippy Cup (remaining silent until I turn around): "...Okay!"

Like most other occasions, the power of his verbal outmaneuver lies in its simplicity. 

And its genius.
