TT: Ohh! *I reach my arms towards it, while sitting six feet away on the bed* I can't reach it. Sorry!
D: No! Get UP!
TT: *gets up and stands six feet away* Nope! Sorry Drew...still can't reach it.
D: *looks thoughtful for a second* Come ova heah! *she points at the floor at the base of the bookshelf.
TT: *moves over and reaches...still too far away* Uh uh. Can't get it yet.
D: No!!! Come ovah HEAH! *she moves out of the way and points to the floor RIGHT at the base*
TT: Uhhhh...UUNNNNGHH!!! *I reach up with my lower arms, leaving my upper arms locked at my sides* I can't get it.
