The door flings open and a little boy races into the room. He has a big grin and there is excitement in his voice.
“Mom! You will be nice if you say yes! Well…you already are nice but you will be SO SO nice if you say yes! Please tell me you will say yes!”
Smile disappears. Eyebrows crunch.
“Wait. Is it a school night? It is a school night, isn’t it? Aargh! I know you are going to say no.
Eyebrows crunch even further. Wrinkles appear on forehead. Voice raises.
“Why do you always say no on a school night?!”
The boy exits the room and storms upstairs to get ready for bed.
Mom shakes her head and says to herself, “Did I just miss something?”
