How To Get Things From Your Mother

Last night after dinner, I was cleaning up the kitchen. Emily walked in and said, "You need to go do something else. I'll clean the kitchen."

"What?" I was completely baffled. Usually I don't get help unless I specifically ask for it.

"God was just really tapping me on the shoulder and saying, 'You should not be sitting here playing solitaire while your mother is cleaning up'. So go sit down and watch television or something, I'll clean up."

I looked over at Ben who was still glued to a computer. "What about you, Ben? Is God telling you to get off the computer and do something?"

"Nope," Ben replied. "God is very pleased with me already. Emily probably just wants something, but she doesn't want to tell you yet. Tomorrow she's going to ask you to buy her something."

"And I'll buy it for her too."

  1. This is hilarious and awesome. I keep telling my 13 yr old that she needs to try this technique. I figure I will say yes 50% of the time anyways but this way I would get more chores done. I wish it was working for me. Your son is hilarious though!
