Jump-box

The four-year old and I were walking along.  He was holding my hand and taking great big jumps every few steps.

"What are you doing?" I asked.

"I'm a jump-box!" he said.

I had no idea even after I'd rattled the words around in my head for a bit.  "Do you mean a jack-in-the-box?"

"No," he said, "One of those animals with antlers who can jump very high!"

"Ohhhhh," I said finally comprehending, "You're a springbok!"

"YES!"  Boing, boing, boing.
