Micah: You look pretty intense there, Marcus. Is the ball threatening you?
Marcus: No, it wouldn't dare threaten me. Can't take my eyes off it for a second, though.
Micah: Why, would it run away if you do?
Marcus: I was waiting for Jan to try to kick it. She's sneaky, but I'm faster than she is sneaky.
Micah: Oh, so you were playing soccer?
Marcus: No. She picked it up and threw it so we played chase.
Micah: You don't play catch?
Marcus: Rarely. Jan usually throws it past me so it's hard to catch. But I am good at catching if she bounces it.
Micah: I'm all for anything that exercises you and tires you out so you leave the rest of us alone for a few minutes.
Marcus: Jan might have returned my red ball to Amazon (Sending Red Ball on Vacation) but I still have my trusty old blue ball with the tooth holes in it. Oh, and by the way, the rope toy Jan accidentally threw into the tree a few months ago finally fell down into the pen. So if this ball should happen to fall apart for no reason, I'll still have something to chase.
Micah: So your new blue ball is now your trusty old blue ball. Interesting. But you do know, I hope, if this ball should happen to fall apart, it will certainly NOT be for no reason!
Marcus: You're right. If this ball falls apart, it will be Jan's fault. She's awfully hard on my toys!
