"Mom, can you take me fishing?"
"Mom. You can watch the sunset."
"There is no sun!"
"Well, you can take pictures and have a nice time and you can cast with my pole."
(Hmm. Is this the part when I say, "Goody, goody! I can take pictures and you will let me fish with your pole?")
"Dad said no. He has to get his license plates."
"License. He needs a fishing license."
"I don't quite understand why you can't bring us."
"Will talk about it tomorrow."
When in doubt, moms can always fall back on "tomorrow"!
