My children were really amusing me. And I mean that with the utmost sarcasm.
“Who’s coming over?” one asked.
“No one,” I said.
“Then why are you doing that?”
“What do you mean? I do this all the time!” I said.
“Oh, we’re having company?” chimed in another.
“No!” I said firmly.
“Yeah, right. Who is it?” asked the first child.
What was I doing to elicit such a response from my children?
-Mary, mother of 4
