Mom... that's so not fair.
Everyone I know gets to watch Cartoon Network!
Yes! And they all get to watch Star Wars cartoons too!
Yes! And they get to play whatever they want on the computer. They don't have a code like we do - they just get to play whatever whenever.
So can I please watch those shows and play computer battle games?
Well, since you put it that way... no.
Listen, I know you don't understand this right now, but you will when you are a Dad someday. There are just much better ways to spend your time. And you are so much more creative when you don't spend a bunch of time watching shows. Trust me.
When I'm a Dad???!! Mom, I'm only nine! Who's even a Dad when they're nine?
No one. You will have to wait until you are Daddy's age.
He's like fifty or something - that will be forever!
How old do you think I am?
Mom, why are we even talkin' about this? You know how old you are. You're like twenty or something like that.
Go watch Cartoon Network, Son.
