Prepping for Gymnastics Day

Allie: What are you doing up there, Brat?


Faraday: Seriouslies, Allie. Tomorrow's Gymnastics Day an' I hasta get in shape for it.


I plan on running all over the house, leaping from shelf to shelf and performing daring feats of physical prowess.


Faraday: So I'm, like, practicing my chinups and stuffs.

How's my form? Count for me, Allie, willya?
I'll bet I can hold this chinup a reeeally long time.
Longer than anybuddy.

Allie: *sigh* Fine.  One ... Two ... Three ...
Let's see if you can make it 'til ten.


Allie: Does it say in the rules you can use your claws?
Isn't that cheating a bit on the forearm strength, Brat?

Four ... Five ...
I mean, a real athlete would be able to pull himself up by the strength of his forearms alone.

(note how Faraday's eyes begin to bug out ....)
If you ask me, yours look a bit on the puny side. Are those arms shaking, Brat?

Six ... Seven ...


*cue crash*
Allie: Eight ... Oops. Guess I got a bit distracted. 


Cue fulminating silence from Tonkinese.

  7. I have to say, your super sharp paws really have me frightened. I could barely read the post after I saw them and imagined getting pounded by one of those paws with weapons!
