All roads lead to sex

I spent all weekend at work, with short forays home for dinner, lunch, and sleep. B. watched the kids (and did a wonderful job).

Me: “Thank you for watching the kids all weekend. I know it’s hard. I owe you.”
B.: “Oh, do you EVER. Probably the only way you CAN pay me back is if you install a trapeze [in the bedroom]….”

*************************

B. is teaching D. that “No” means “You are not getting whatever it is you just said ‘No’ to.” D. seems to think that “No” means “yes” in certain situations. So there is B., asking D. all those leading questions:

B.: “D., do you want milk?”
D.: “NO”
B.: “D., do you want beans?”
D.: “NO”
B.: “D., do you want bread pudding?”
D.: “nooooo…. BREAD PUDDING, BREAD PUDDING!!!!!”
B.: “Well, you can’t have bread pudding.”
D.: “BREAD PUDDING, BREAD PUDDING, BREAD PUDDING, BREAD PUDDING!!!!!”
B.: “Nope, can’t have it.”
Me: “Hmmm, that’s a bit mean. To put it in terms you will relate to, it’s like me asking you if you want to have sex and then saying that you can’t have it when you answer ‘yes’.”
