(As I round the corner, Eli suddenly hops off of our stair banister, which he knows he is not supposed to climb on.)
Eli: (Sounding a little nervous) Oh, hi mom! I wasn't climbing on the banister.
Me: You weren't? But you just jumped off of it!
Eli: Oh, that. Well, I just went 'whoop', and was trying to get off of it.
Me: But how did you get ON it in the first place?
Eli: I dunno.
Me: So let me get this straight. You were climbing off of the banister, but you don't remember how you got on it in the first place.
Something about this story sound a little fishy to YOU?
