"How can I help you?"
"Well, my 2 year old daughter drank at least 20 sippies today. All my family keeps saying it doesn't seem right."
"Oh. Has she been urinating a lot too?"
"YES! Like, I JUST changed her diaper a few minutes ago before you called, and can tell I need to change it again already. I guess she really has to go bad with all these sippies she's been drinking."
"I see. So, how long has this been going on?"
"Oh, geez. It's been a few weeks. But she got sick last week, and it's gotten a lot worse since then. I thought maybe it was a side effect of the medicine they gave her. Anyway, my grandmother watched her the other day and said it's not normal. She told me I'd better call you, so I counted how many sippies she took today. I'm just calling to see if that's normal so I can tell my grandma that I called."
Gotta love those Grandmas.
