Inen Likes Nalgene Bottles

Korie and I each have a BPA-free Nalgene bottle that we use to keep hydrated during the day. Korie's is bright blue and mine is bright red. Inen is infatuated with them both. He loves the color, he loves the weight and the liquid splashing around in there, and he loves the idea of drinking from them. For that reason we try not to let him see us drinking from them, otherwise he just goes nuts and has to have the bottle for himself.
Just now I was sitting with him in the living room. I had my Nalgene hidden behind his book basket, and would only drink from it if he wasn't looking. Inevitably, he looked up just in time to see me mid-swig. His look of excitement as he shot up an nearly jumped over his big stuffed dog, scrambling furiously toward me in an attempt to grab the bottle, was almost enough to make me spray the mouthful of water I had. He got the thing from me just as I closed the lid and busted up laughing. It was hilarious. But maybe you had to be there.
