One of the most common things I hear is “and then you/he/she said…”
Wouldn’t you love to do have that power and people would play along?
Get pulled over: “and then he said, I’ll just give you a warning”
Having relatives visit: “and then they said they wanted to stay in a hotel instead”
An important project deadline missed: “and then they said, we thought we should give you more time and a bonus for working so hard”
Spilled something in the house: “and then he said, let me clean it up”
Meeting with teachers: “and then she said that my kid is the most responsible in the class”
Mother’s day: “and then he said, I want you to stay in a hotel this weekend ad let me take care of the kids”
Don’t have cash for a tip: “and then she said I really don’t like getting tips”
Argument with spouse: “and then he said, actually I’m wrong, I’m sorry”
Kids misbehaving in a public place: “and then they said that they love loud kids”
This could be endless. If you got to play with life as the kids do, what would you say?
