Brian takes a drink

After a morning run, Thomas was drinking Gatorade and Brian was running around the table.  He ran over to the glass and started tapping against it, which we took to be an indication that he wanted to see what was inside.

Thomas obliged him, tilting the glass down, expecting Brian to run away, but instead Brian ran into the glass!

Thomas then dumped the Gatorade and filled the glass with water to see if this would continue.  It did!
Brian, possibly excited by our laughter, started running around, jumping on top of the glass, occasionally going inside, and just having a good time.  At one point, we thought he was going to take a bath, but things never got that far.
Sorry for the poor picture quality; it was very bright and I was laughing!  At the end, when he was done, he climbed on to Thomas's arm for a break:
A short video, though of course he had to take a detour when he noticed the camera:
I know I am a broken record on this, but how did his former owners give him up?  Since they didn't ever let him out of his cage, perhaps they had no idea of what they really had.  I can't believe how lucky we are to have him.

He is so happy with y'all. He knows what a gift he's received in being able to live with you, and he's giving you the best of himself in return. You are some lucky humans!!!
