  1. It's just a phase.
  2. I'm not tired.
  3. Kids don't need to bathe every day.
  4. Or every other day.
  5. Come to think of it, I don't need to shower either.
  6. I'm not going to eat the leftover macaroni and cheese straight from the pot.
  7. I'm not going to eat all of the leftover macaroni and cheese straight from the pot.
