It caught my attention as I zoomed by.
Me – “Oh, hey, here’s that lollipop I picked up for you at the store.”
Her – “Can I have it now?”
Me – “Use your own judgment.”
She had already told me earlier that she had had enough sugar for one day. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw her conflicted mind expressed on her face.
Moments later, she approached me with her answer.
Her – “If I don’t eat it, the sugar ants will get to it.”
Clever. Five points for creative thinking.
Ten minutes later I asked her if she ate it as I saw no evidence.
Her – “No, you said I couldn’t.”
Me – “I said use your own judgment.”
Her – “And my judgment was to not eat it yet.”
Another five points.
Me – “Okay, well put it somewhere where the ants don’t get to it.”
