9-year-old: Why? And what are abominable exercises?

9-year-old: I don’t think your body can handle all this movement.
Me: Thanks a lot.

9-year-old: I’m sitting down.
9-year-old: Well, someone needs to call the ambulance when you need medical assistance and by the looks of it, that may be very soon. Also, I’m really hungry. I’m hoping you’ll make me something to eat before you pass out.
Me: That’s so honest of you.
9-year-old: That’s what you get with me. I’m no holes fard all the time.
Me: That’s no holds barred.
9-year-old: That doesn’t even make any sense to me.
