"Mama, I can't find my string with the cork on it."

"The one you left on the floor? I threw it out."

"Mama! That was mine!"

"It was on the floor, where it didn't belong. I threw it out."


"Mama, have you seen my Haunter Pokémon card?"

"There was a Haunter card on the floor in the hall this morning. I threw it out."

"Mama! It wasn't trash!"

"It was on the floor and I watched you walk over it at least twice with no more regard for it than if it was trash. I threw it out."

"MAMA! What are you DOING?"

"I'm about to pick up these toys off the floor."

"NO! I'll do it! Right now! Not you!"

Join me in a two-finger victory dance, anyone?

Yeah, this was a good lesson. No points for you.
