Personal Trainer

Sippy Cup (jumping up and down in front of the book shelf): "One!"

Me: "I believe it's pronounced 'Good Morning' but I could be mistaken."

Sippy Cup (still jumping up and down): "Two!"

Me: "Please stop jumping."

Sippy Cup (jumping up and down): "I can't!  Three!"

Me: "Of course not.  And why is that?"

Sippy Cup (jumping up and down): "I can't reach the game I want.  Four!"

Me: "If I give it to you will you stop?"

Sippy Cup (jumping up and down): "No, not yet.  Five!"

Me: "I expected as much.  Why not?"

Sippy Cup (jumping up and down): "Because I'm doing my exercises.  Six!"

Me: "Why are you doing exercises?"

Sippy Cup (jumping up and down): "Because I ate a lot of junk food last night.  Seven!"

Me: "Grandpa said you ate rice, chicken and vegetables last night."

Sippy Cup (jumping up and down): "It makes me strong so I can fight the dinosaurs.  Eight!"

Me: "The dinosaurs?  What dinosaurs?"

Sippy Cup (jumping up and down): "From the movie.  Nine!"

Me: "The movie?  What movi...wait a second...you were watching
Jurassic Park with Grandpa again, weren't you?

Sippy Cup (jumping up and down): "Yep.  Ten!"

Me (shaking my head): "I need to speak to Grandpa."

Sippy Cup (wiping his face): "Phew!  That was good! Now I'm ready!"
