Mary and John (But, Too, Either)

Mary and John

     I have two children. My daughter's name is Mary and my son's name is John. In the morning, Mary gets up at 7:00 and John does too. She doesn't drink coffee and he doesn't either. Mary goes to school, but John doesn't. John has a job, but Mary doesn't. Mary comes home for dinner and John does too. In the evening, Mary usually likes to watch TV, and John does too. Yesterday Mary wasn't tired but John was. She ate chicken and rice for dinner and he did too. John went to bed early but Mary didn't. On the weekends, John likes to play basketball, but Mary doesn't. She doesn't like to play baseball, and he doesn't either.
