Sunday Morning Conversation
Jimmy is walking out of the bathroom with that bathroom's tube of public use toothpaste and MY toothbrush.
JImmy, did you use my toothbrush?
Give it to me.
(He hands it to me and fortunately it is dry.)
Were you going to use it?
So you were walking to the basement sink with my toothbrush and some toothpaste but you weren't going to use it. Were you going to hold it? Look at it? PLay with it?
No, I was going to brush my teeth with it.
Jimmy, that's using it.
Well I don't have a toothbrush.
But that's gross. Just because you don't have one doesn't mean you can take someone else's.
(He starts to walk away)
Where are you going?
Upstairs to brush my teeth.
But you don't have a toothbrush? Are you going to go steel the one I have in the upstairs bathroom too?
No, Dad has some new ones in your bedroom.
So why didn't you use one of those in the first place?
He shrugs and walks upstairs. After my shower I call up to him.
Jimmy, give me the toothpaste.
Because I need to brush my teeth.
(He throws it down to me and I explain to Bart that he had tried to rip off my toothbrush to which he replies)
That's not true. She's been using MINE.
No JImmy, I've been using the same one for four months. You have NOT been using that toothbrush.
(Oh wow. This is one of the few times I have wished with all my heart that one of my children was lying).
