An exercise routine

D: Have you won any sweets?

Me: I don’t want any sweets.

D: Why?

Me: Because I won’t burn off the sugar like you – I’m sat down all day and not running around.

D: I know what you could do – you could drop me off at Vikki’s, and then you could run around – round and round – in Vikki’s car park for 3 minutes, and then get in the car and go to work. That’s my idea.

Me: It’s quite a good idea, but it’ll mean I’m late for work. Maybe I’ll run around at work during lunchtime.

D: But you’re not allowed to run at work…

Me: You are, if you find the right place.

D: And the right place is… Outside! Is it?

Me: Yes.

Sweet tooth
August 6, 2012

D: How does your body know when you’ve had too many sweets?
Me: Your body makes energy out of sugar, so if you eat lots of sweets but aren’t running around, then your body doesn’t know what to do with all the energy – that’s when your body would get fat, spotty and your teeth would fall out.
D: But I WANT my teeth to fall out so the tooth fairy comes.
Me: The tooth fairy won’t come for teeth that fall out because of too many sweets.
D: But WHEN will my teeth fall out? They’re just not doing it. Edward’s tooth fell out naturally at Vikki’s and we had to look all around for a white thing that looked like paper, or plastic, or just like a tooth. And he got a coin. And my teeth NEVER fall out, so I’ll never get a coin!
