What’s this stuff? Oh…it’s dinner??
me: (warning growl)
Jack: OH! It’s dinner! Heh heh. (frowns into his plate)
me: Jack, you specifically asked for this rice in the store. And you love turkey burgers…what’s the problem??
Jack: I changed my mind about the rice. It must have been the other one!
me: Could you please try it before you say you don’t like it?
Jack: (tries) Heyyyy, it’s pretty good actually!
Jack: Could I have some more?
me: Told ya so…
(Later on the phone with his dad)
Dennis: So what did you have for dinner?
Jack: (glances at me) Uhhh… Rice and some meat thing like…
me: (cutting him off) Turkey burgers Jack. TURkey BURgers!
Jack: Uh turkey burgers, sheesh mom’s being annoying.
Dennis: Sounds like a good dinner.
Jack: (whispers) Nooooo…
