Getting Sleepy While Waiting

Frankie Suave says the problem with younger brothers is how long they take in the yard when you’re getting sleepy while waiting.

Would they hurry up?

Young ‘uns today, mutters Frankie Suave. He goes out to the yard, takes care of business, and is ready to go back inside for good napping time. His younger brothers, though, have to sniff around, wrestle, play, and otherwise take forever. He says forgive him if he naps a little while standing and waiting, but he’s getting sleepy.
