    drinking last few drops from a water bottle with a straw

    Little Johnny is drinking from his water bottle with a straw.

    Little Johnny: No more!

    You still have a little left.

    Little Johnny: No more!

    No, don’t tilt the bottle. That’s why you’re not getting any. See that straw in there? It needs to stay in the water. When you tilt your bottle, the water goes away from the straw. That’s why when you sip, you’re not getting any, because the straw is not in the water. You need to keep the straw in the water.

    Little Johnny: Got it. No more!

    You still have a few drops left.

    Little Johnny: I can’t get it.

    Well, this time, you have to tilt your bottle. The water is not plenty enough to reach the end of the straw now, so you have to tilt the bottle a little to one side so that water gets high enough for the straw to reach it, and then you move your straw to where the water is. Hold your bottle with one hand, tilt it to one side like so, and then use your other hand to move your straw into the water, like this.

    Please check italics if they sound natural.
