Breaking rules and other habits.

Beaumont:   Whaaaat?

Me:  Beau, you know you’re not supposed to beg for food.

Beau:  I wasn’t begging. Auntie Annie offered.

Me:  And you know better than to accept.

Beau:  Says who?

Me:  (sigh)  Me?

Beau:  Right. Anyone else?

Me:  Beau. Be polite.

Beau:  I am being politeShe’s a guest. I’m just being polite in accepting what she offers. You want me to be rude?

Me:  I want you to follow house rules.

Beau:  Ha! Well that’s not happening.

Me:  Why not?

Beau:  I told you. She’s a guest. Anyway. Maybe you should talk to her about disobeying house rules.

Me:  Like that’s going to make a difference. She’as incorrigible as you are.

Beau:  Is incorrigible something I can eat?

Me:  Definitely not. It pertains to your shared habit of breaking rules.

Beau:  Well then, that’s definitely a good habit for us to share. (turning back to my sister) Can I have another cracker please?


Sigh.  My sister is visiting from Gabriola Island. She doesn’t believe in following the rules, at least not where Beau’s concerned. But then, neither does he.
