A Conversation

Me: I made dinner. Now you do the clean-up, then we can watch another Key & Peele.
Son: OK.
[15 minutes pass]
Me: I see a piece of Saran Wrap haphazardly thrown over the salad bowl.
Son [agreeably]: Yes.
Me: Is that cleaning up?
Son: ...
Me [getting huffy]: What do you think a fair split is, dinnerwise? I make dinner AND clean it up?
Son [weighs options]: I was awaiting further instruction.

  1. I thought the beloved son's job was to eat food which is bad for him and watch sports on TV, while making copious messes?

    1. I think you are channeling Beloved Son! Although he's less a sports-guy than a random-You-Tube-videos guy. You nailed the copious mess and crappy food aspect, though. It's almost like you were once a twelve-year-old boy. :D

    1. I need to do more of these, while he is in quotable-quotes phase.
