For you, today only, my hand to god…

Scene: Son splashing around in bubble bath, while Mom reads a book.

Me: Ok, sweetie, time to get out.

Boy: 10 more minutes, please?

Me: No. A couple more and then it’s tooth brushing time.

Him: [raises his hands to chest high, palms facing the heavens and shrugs] Six minutes, and that’s the best I can do.

Yep, that’s my boy. He too will have the power to make car salesmen cry. (It’s not an oft-used power, mind you…but it is a really fun power ever 5 or 6 years.)
