A conversation while driving home:
DramaBoy: If you are very good, I will give you a surprise!
TeacherMommy: You'll give me a surprise?
TM: If I'm good?
TM: What do you mean by being good? What do I have to do?
DB: If you wash the dishes all the time, then I will give you a surprise!
TM: Really? Wash the dishes?
DB: Yes! But if you wash them only two times--only one time, then maybe I will give it to you right now.
TM: So if I only wash the dishes once, I'll get the surprise right away?
DB: Yep! I will find my Bakugan! I haven't found them all yet.
TM: I see. Bakugan. Hmm. I'm not so sure I would really want Bakugan, honey.
DB: You're right. You don't really like Bakugan. You only like work.
DB: Look! I will give you something for work!
*he picks up a travel coffee mug off the floor of the car where it must have fallen from my bag*
TM: Thank you, honey! I wondered where that had gone.
DB: You're welcome! Now go wash the dishes!
