    difficult child, as usual, wanted the cord so he could play PS2. I told him he first had to bring in his backpack from the car.
    He sighed and brought it in, then demanded the cord.
    I said, "No, I have to look through your homework notebook."
    "That's not what you said. You said 'bring in your backpack.'"
    "Well, I was thinking that I wanted you to bring in your backpack so that I could look through your homework notebook and see if you've got any homework. Then you can have the cord."
    "Well, why didn't you tell me that in the beginning? I'm not psychopathic!"


    I couldn't resist.
    I said, "Oh, yes you are."

    Are you sure our kids aren't related because my 12yo pulled that same routine on me just last night. Though she threw in a term "implied contract" , I told her if she wants to list this argument (years from now) in her application to law school go for it but I'm not giving up my seat at this computer before I'm ready. LOL The things these kids will do to get out of homework!
