After serving my lazy assed son his pancakes before school this morning, I poured him his required glass of OJ (he brings out a 20 ounce glass of OJ every evening to watch TV. I don't know how that much citrus acid doesn't rot through his stomach lining, but I guess it's better than chugging soda).

Anyway, as I topped off the glass, I noticed there was just a little OJ left in the carton, so I asked him to take a big swig so I could finish it off rather than experience wife wrath for placing an almost empty container back in the fridge (yes, all four of us kids will put anything back with only a drop or film left so we don't have to run it out to the recyclable container, and then jot down on the shopping list we ran out of <x>). So the self proclaimed king of chugging OJ takes a small sip.

"Dude, stop busting my chops, take a good swig and I'll drain the rest of the carton." Another small sip, but enough to pour about half of what was left.

"C'mon, before I dump that plate of syrup in your lap." Again, another small sip, but now enough to empty the carton while replenishing the OJ in his glass to the brim.

Curiosity now has its grip on me, so I ask why a kid who can drain a gallon jug of OJ in about 6.4 seconds suddenly is sipping it like a high browed socialite sips champagne.

"I need a full glass at the end of breakfast."
"So I can let out a monster burp."

Sure enough, as I settled in to read the paper in the other room, the windows rattled from the eruption. Of course.
