'Nastics

"Jet, would you like to do gymnastics?"

"No, Momma, only girls do 'nastics. I don't want to do 'nastics."

"Boys, really strong boys do gymnastics, too. It's very cool."

"Oh. Hm..." thinking, "Huh. Girls do her-nastics. Boys do him-nastics... and hmm... flowers do flower-nastics, rocks do rock-nastics, mamas do mama-nastics, and Daddies do daddy-nastics! Water does water-nastics. Computers do computer-nastics. Cars do car-nastics and vans do van-nastics."

"What do 'nanas have?"

"'Nanas have peels."
