Me: But it's Christmas! We need to watch something light and happy.
SH: I don't like musicals.** Besides, we watched "Oklahoma" a few weeks ago. I don't want to watch another one.
Me: How about this? Just watch the first half hour. That's all. Then we can watch one of the other ones.
SH [rolls eyes and sighs a deep sigh]: Fine.
Half an hour later.
Me: OK. Turn it off.
Me: It's been half an hour. You don't have to watch any more.
SH: Well. I suppose I could watch a little more.
Me: Nope. We made a deal. Turn it off.
SH: No. Really. I don't mind.
Me: All right. If you insist.

** He has seen exactly one musical in his life and that was "Oklahoma." Which he liked. He thought Shirley Jones was hot. She was.
