Marriage 301, Lecture 598: Forest, tree, fall, etc

Me: Laverne. SHUT UP.

SH: Why aren't you feeding them?

Me: Because I don't want them to be starving when Tyler [the neighbor kid] comes over tonight [after we leave for our trip]. It's only 6:30 [a.m.]. They're not used to eating so early.

SH: You're being mean to Laverne.

Me: You're right. And it's not like yelling at her will make her stop whining.

SH: She won't whine this afternoon to be fed. There won't be anyone here. She's like me: there's no point in whining if there's nobody to hear.

Me: Oh really?

SH: I don't whine if you're not around.

Me: Lucky me.
