Sippy Cup (walking home from Nina's house): "Aww Dad! Look! The neighbor's dogs are so cute!"
Me (taking a look and seeing three Lhasa Apsos running around the yard): "Heh. Yeah. They are cute."
Sippy Cup (turning to me): "We should get one of those!"
Me: "Well, my good sir, while I agree that we should get a puppy, I don't think it should be one of those."
Sippy Cup (frowning): "Why not?"
Me: "Because, my good man, Daddy has decided that he wants a bulldog. French or English. It doesn't matter. I just want a bulldog. Like Spike, from Tom and Jerry!"
Sippy Cup (crossing his arms): "No way! I want a little one like that! And I want to name her 'Cupcake'!"
Me (aghast): "What? Who are you?"
Sippy Cup (turning and walking away): "I'm a kid!"
Me: "Thanks Captain Obvi-"
Sippy Cup (shouting over his shoulder): "And I want a puppy named 'Cupcake'!"
