Conversation with my cousin’s 5 year old daughter:

Her: Can you run?

Me: What do you mean, can I run?

Her: Like, do you know how to?

My response: Of course I can run, silly! What would make you think I can’t run?

(My thought: Holy crap! Am I that out of shape, that children assume that I’m actually incapable of running?! I may not run ever very frequently, but I’m certainly capable of doing it, thankyouverymuch!)

Her: blank stare on her face and I hear crickets….

Perhaps I should start working out a little more seriously?
