Tonight at the dinner table Moses asked for more pizza and Richard told him to eat some of his fruit salad first. Several minutes and a few prompts later, Moses still hadn't taken a bite of his fruit and Richard offered him this option:
Richard: Moses, you can either take a bite of your fruit or you can be disciplined.
Moses, lips pursed, eyes turned upwards in deep though: Hmmmm..... I will choose..... let me think.....
Richard, sternly, to keep from laughing: Moses.
Moses, hastily: It's just so hard!
At this, we all burst into laughter. Can't help it.
Moses, smiling now: Yeah, it's just hard to we-member what my choices are.
