As I was coming out of a local mall with Andrew (9) and Michael (5) this evening, we passed by a Cold Stone Creamery shop (a good ice cream chain). Michael immediately started pestering me to go in.
Michael: "Please, please, please can we go to Cold Stone?" [repeat n times]
Me: "Michael, stop begging."
Michael: [stopping dead in the parking lot and looking straight at me] "I'm not begging. I"m badgering." ["duh" look on his face.]
Well, damn. I didn't expect to be corrected like this for at least another year or two.
Still, no ice cream. I'm just mean that way. Especially to snarky kids.Posted by Tony at July 19, 2006 10:20 PM | TrackBack
