Me: Hey buddy, I hear you got a time out at recess.
Monkey: … yeah…
Me: Wanna tell me what happened?
Monkey: No thank you!
Me: Yeah, um, it’s not really optional.
Chickadee: Yeah, Monkey, that was a returgical question.
Me: Rhetorical. And not exactly.
Chickadee: That’s what I SAID. *huffy sigh*
Me: Okay. Monkey? What happened?
Monkey: We were playing a GAME.
Monkey: Miss Teacher thought I tackled C.
Me: Did you?
Me: Okay. Did C… fall down? And then maybe… you fell on top of him?
Monkey: It’s not like he was CRYING or anything.
Me: Oh, well then.
