“Mum!!!” King-Earl called out to me as he opened the refrigerator, “I want your Yoghurt in the fridge.”
“Why?! It’s good to share!” King-Earl insisted
“Nope, I’m not sharing.” I continued with what I was cooking.
“If you don’t share, you are not a Child, no, Adult of God.” (With a look that said “this will make you do it”)
“But I don’t want to share!” I replied, getting frustrated with this conversation.
“Then you are an Adult of something that God defeated” he said disappointingly and walked out of the kitchen.
That alone, stopped me from encouraging any thought to eat that Yoghurt. And yes, King-Earl and sister got to enjoy it at the end of the day.
