On Sunday, we went shopping. C wasn’t terribly happy about this. He typically likes shopping, but for some reason he was feeling quite cranky and was opposing pretty much everything that was done or said.
This is the end of a conversation that C & I had in the car as we were looking for a parking place. C had been coming up with reasons not to go shopping.
C: I want to go swimming!
Me: No. It’s raining. We can’t go swimming when it’s raining.
C: Yeah. No swimming when it’s raining.
Me: How about we go shopping instead.
C: No. It’s raining. We can’t go shopping when it’s raining. How about we go swimming instead?
