B: I think I'm still hungry, you?
Me: Not really. You goin' downstairs to get something?
B: I think so. I want a brownie, but I should probably just eat an orange.
Me: Then get the orange.
B: Man, but your brownies were good.
Me: You'll feel better about yourself if you eat an orange.
B: You're probably right. *walks out*
[5 minutes later]
B: Um, yeah...so the brownies are gone.
Me: Yeah, I ate the last one for breakfast.
B: You didn't want to mention that?
Me: You didn't ask...and I told you to get the orange.
B: No, you said I'd feel better if I got the orange.
Me: Right, you see how sad you are now that you tried to get the brownies? I wanted to save you from that.
He really has to learn to listen better, dontcha think.
