At the lunch table.
R — Can I eat all of the nuggets except one?
Dad — You can be done.
R, excitedly — I don’t have to eat them?!
Dad — No.
R — Okay! (Pause) Can I have fruit snacks?
Dad — No. If you want fruit snacks you have to eat what’s on your plate first.
R, upset— I knew it!! You need to tell me what’s real! You make me confused and it drives me cuckoo crazy!
