Jack comes out from his bedroom where he’s supposed to be asleep.
Jack: “I need to make a tripwire.”
Alex: “Okay. Where do you need to make it?”
Really, Alex? Of the dozens of possible responses to that statement, that’s what you’re going with?
Then, a few minutes later, Alex came in to see me and say, “Just to let you know, the children have set a tripwire to capture you.” Then he wandered off with a shrug, remarking casually as he walked out of the room, “You should go check it out.”
Like I’m falling for that.
