Seven-year-old boy #1: When I grow up I want a three-bedroom apartment.
Seven-year-old boy #2: Yeah, I’m gonna have a whole room just for food.
Seven-year-old boy #3: I’m gonna have a room just for dancing.
Seven-year-old boy #1: But you don’t dance now. You hate dancing.
Seven-year-old boy #3: If I had a room to do it in, I’d dance.
