Not On Thursdays

Sippy Cup (at the dining room table): "Dad, can you cut my pancakes for me please?"

Me: "Sure thing buddy. Do you want some syrup also?"

Sippy Cup: "No thanks. Not on Thursdays."

Me: "Uhm. What?"

Sippy Cup: "I don't eat my pancakes with syrup on Thursdays."

Me: "How are those two things related?"

Sippy Cup: "Dad! I have art class on Thursdays!"

Me: "OK. That still doesn't help me connect the dots."

Sippy Cup (sighing): "If I eat my pancakes with syrup, my hands get sticky. I can't do my art projects in art class if my hands are sticky!"

Me: "OK. I guess that makes sense."

Sippy Cup: "Duh. That's what I've been trying to tell you."

- 5 minutes later -

Me: "Wait a second...have you been going to school without washing your hands in the morning?!"
