A bedtime dialog between me and my five-year-old.
[Boy Two], what was the best thing that happened today?
Uh huh. Seeping.
How could sleeping be the best thing that happened today?
I mean lunch. Lunch! Lunch was the greatest thing that happened today. Do you agree? Was lunch the best thing that happened today?
What do you mean, lunch? Where did we go for lunch?
The pizza place and the veggie place.
Actually, yeah, I did like lunch. What did you like about it?
I liked everything about it.
That's pretty awesome, dude. It's not often that I like everything about anything. How do you think that I could like more about the stuff that I have to do?
You will never like the stuff that you have to do.
You mean there's no hope? Is there nothing I can do to be happier when I'm doing things that are kind of boring or annoying or that cause me to be anxious? Isn't there anything I can do to make my life better?
You could watch Netflix everyday.
What about if we have dirty dishes in the sink? What about if I need to vacuum?
You should just watch Netflix anyway.
