|SSava put out a twit (www.twitter.com) yesterday about how he wished "every conflict could be resolved by saying "I'm going to count to three...""
So, here's a conversation my friend Sean had with his wife and their nine year old son:
Melissa, "Skylar, go take out the trash."
Skylar was playing a video game, "Just one minute."
Melissa, "Skylar, now."
Skylar, "Juuuust one moooore minute."
Melissa, "Sky, off the game now! Take out the trash."
Melissa, "I'm going to count to three..."
Sean, "Skylar, take out the trash."
Skylar paused the game and got up to take out the trash.
Melissa, "Wait a minute. Why do you get up when he asks you and not me?"
Skylar looked at his mother, "Dad doesn't count."
"Ignorance can be cured, stupidity is terminal."
