I actually used the line, “There are starving children in the world…you need to eat that oatmeal.” this morning during breakfast. I even winced a bit as it was coming out of my mouth.
Van stopped, looked at me, and then at the air and replied, “Can they see us right now?”
Me: “Well, no. But how do you think they would feel if they could see you turn down delicious oatmeal?”
Him: “I think that they would want you to fix me a better breakfast.”
