Elder Princeski is just old enough to make her favorite dinner, pancakes. She has finally finished her homework and is in a good mood. I haven't yet told her about my in-service training next week. I figure this might be a good time to breach the subject.
ALN: So, I have to tell you something: Next week I'm going away for three days.
Elder Princeski: What?!? Three days? Does this mean we won't see you?
Elder P: (slightly perturbed) Why are you doing this to us?
ALN: I need to go away for work.
Elder P: But what does that mean to us?
ALN: Well, it means something to me. It's for work.
(A pregnant pause, while she flips the pancakes).
ALN: Wait, did you just say, What does that mean to us?
Elder P: Why, do you wanna blog it?
ALN: Yeah, actually. I'll be right back...
Sometimes (always?) they see right through me.
Keep the balance,
