Maybe Agility Training Would Be Cool

There's this game I like to play where I run REALLY REALLY fast around and around the room, bouncing off the furniture as I go. If my people are there I go back and forth between them, but the main goal is to fly through the air and bounce off the back of the couch. Not the part where they sit on -- the back.

I first learned to do this in Mexico and I could cover ten feet with only two steps on the ground. Mama always seemed very impressed so I push myself to jump farther and farther. At our new house the couch rocks so it took a little getting used to, but now I use that movement to launch back into the air.

It's fun. Seriously.

The other night I was racing around the living room and my grampa was sitting on the couch, but instead of jumping next to him I decided to go BEHIND him. Holy moly! Can you say FUN? All three of them started laughing, so of course I did it again.

And again.

Mama said it looked like I was riding a skateboard on a ramp, whatever that means. All I know is I could jump from the ground, to the back of the couch, take two steps behind him (still on the back of the couch) then launch back to the floor.

I tried doing it where mama was sitting but I ended up diving straight into her chest. Maybe next time.

Sounds like you need to buy him a cape.
