Scene: Grant’s bedroom. His friend Jake is over to play. I hear banging noises, so I investigate. I find them both on the top bunk, with travel pillows around their necks. Grant is not allowed to get up on the top bunk.
Me: “Grant! Get down right this instant! What are you doing up there!?”
Grant and Jake climb down.
Me: “You know you’re not supposed to get up there!! What were you thinking?!”
Grant: “I was thinking that you weren’t going to come in and see me….”
I really need to learn to stop asking rhetorical questions.
