Are you asleep, Grampa? No. It may look like that, but actually I'm doing mental gymnastics to keep my mind in shape. I'm solving math problems, reciting my favorite grocery lists, alphabetizing my sock drawer, that sort of thing. Wow! I'll probably have to rest up for a while when I'm finished.

Do you like to read poetry, Clyde? No, not really. In fact, I even wrote a poem about how much I don't like to read poetry. I'd recite it to you, but I don't like to hear poetry either.
