G: I want to go somewhere. What are we doing today?
Me: We could go to the beach.
Me: Swap meet?
Me: Library storytime?
Me: Take the train down to the mission?
G: What's the mission?
Me: Grandma's house?
Me: Church carnival?
Me: Go to that big shopping center and ride the carousel?
G: Have they got gelato there?
Me: I don't know. I think so.
Me: You know what I wish?
Me: I wish there were a place where moms could drop off pesty little kids who complain about being bored and reject all attempts to help them. It would be called the No-Fun Zone, and the kids would sit around and say "I don't wanna do that" while the moms went out and had fun together.
G: I'm going up to my room to sulk.
I'd be annoyed if it weren't so ridiculous!
