It's all more amusing after a couple glasses of wine.

Somehow it came about that Emily decided she could jump up and down, while holding onto the arm of a chair, for a full hour.

My father-in-law started timing it for her.

Emily: What'll you give me if I do it?
Phil: I'll give you all the money I have in this pocket.
Emily: I'll bet you don't even have any money in that pocket.
Phil: Maybe I have a hundred dollar bill!

At the six minute mark, Emily groaned and collapsed.

Phil: I suppose I get to keep my hundred dollars.
Emily: I suppose you can't even show me those hundred dollars!

She's currently trying again.

Oh, hey, I remember you! Kidding...

I'm totally the type that would bribe the child with promises of money/candy/ponies and I wouldn't be able to produce. Emily would be on to me in an instant. Did she succeed the second time?
