the mysterious box

so we are at the church yesterday, and i see this big box stuck to the wall. so i point at it and grunt and raise my eyebrows in such a way as to indicate i am asking a question, as this is how i get mom and dad to tell me the names for things.

"that is a water fountain, sam. do you want a drink?" asks my dad.

wow, i can get a drink from that box? neato! so i climb up the little stairs in front of it. dad pushes the button, and water shoots out! wow! this is the coolest thing ever. i put my face down there and cold water shoots into my mouth. this makes me laugh, and i forget that i am supposed to be drinking it. i have a good time getting my face wet for a minute. then i decide to actually drink some. then i just push the button and make the water shoot out for a while. i lose interest for a minute and run around and make noise. then i see the water fountain again and climb up there again and repeat steps one through three. then i play and run around some more, then play with the water fountain again. then mom and dad want to leave, but i have to play with the water again, just one more time!

i am considering giving up cups altogether as a means of drinking. no dishes to wash, no hassle of keeping track of a cup. and also a very cool toy. now i just need to get mom and dad on board with the idea of installing a water box at home....

Wow, you must be really smart to drink and not even get water up your nose. Yes, everyone should have a water fountain at home, but what about milk, and Kool-Aid, Coke, rootbeer, and slushies? You just gotta have a glass sometimes.

Sam, you should know that in some retarded states directly to the north of Illinois, they call these devices "bubblers." Yes, 'tis a silly place where men date other men, people wear cheese on their heads of their own free will, and "Favre" is pronounced "Farve." You should eschew this place as if 'twere the plague.

Hey, Sam, are your mom and dad role playing in Fayetteville?
