Master Manipulator

[Sounds of my two boys playing a video game together...]

Daddy? Will you get me a drink?

Uh huh...

Now? I'm really thirsty.

I'm a little busy right now Ty. You can get it...

*pause* [sounds of video game continue]

You know, Daddy, friends do stuff for each other.


You're my best friend, you know.

I am?



I'm your best friend too, right?


And I'm your only son and you love me...right?


So you have to do things for me because you love me, right?

[sounds of video game being paused and a long sigh]

Are you going to get me a drink?

Yes, Ty.

Thanks Daddy! I love you!

[sounds of someone trudging upstairs and sounds of someone else gleefully stealing the spot in front of the computer...]

Kids are genius this days. I think your kid is really good at mind games. He is smart. You must have been a very good tutor to him. keep it up!

That's cute. You know, when I started reading this entry and saw the comment about "my two boys", I thought, "Good grief, when did she get another kid???? Has it been THAT long since I read her blog?"

Whew, don't scare me like that.

Sounds like something that would happen at our house!

Of course, we also play the game, "While you're up....."
