Yup, that’s the lesson here

Ben and Karina just lost an opportunity to go to the library because they didn’t pick up their share of the toys in the time allotted.  After the weeping and gnashing of teeth subsided, I witnessed this conversation:

Ben: I doooooonnnnn’t geeeet tooooo gooooooo toooooo the liiiiiibraaaaaryyyyyy.

Karina: Me either.  But you know what?  At least we don’t have to clean anymore.

Ben: Oh!  That’s true.

[I’d include the lecture from me that followed, but since its impact was pretty minimal, I’m not sure it’s worth your time.]
