Oldest Child: “Sis, Mom said tonight is our night and we have to do it today! So when do you want to do this?”
Middle Child: “Um, well, it’s 7:30 pm now and I’m watching Speed Racer. We’ll do it in a bit”
2 hours elapsed…
Oldest Child: “So, it’s 9:30 pm and bed time is 10:00 pm. When do you want to get started?”
Middle Child: “In a minute!!!”
Half an hour goes by….
Oldest Child: “So it’s 10:oo pm and Mom just busted every excuse we could possibly come up with. She said we can’t do it tomorrow, we have to do it now!”
Middle Child: “Dude, I’m so tired. Why didn’t we start this earlier? Maybe you didn’t ask correctly…let me ask!”
Oldest Child: “Are you serious?!?!? She just, ugh, never mind!”
Middle Child: “Mom, can we do it tomorrow?
A sound resembling a banshee’s scream echoes through the house…
Middle Child: “Sigh… I hate doing dishes!”
