Last week when I signed my daughter up for tumbling, she assured me that she would go every week. I know how my daughter operates, so I wanted a commitment from her before I signed her up. I just got a call from her:
DQ: I don't want to go to tumbling today. Me: I'm sorry, but you have to go. DQ: But I don't feel like going. Me: You still have to go. You told me last week that you would go every week if I signed you up. DQ: I meant that I would go every week when I felt like it, but I didn't have to go when I didn't feel like it.
My blood pressure began to rise at this point.
I then got a follow-up call:
DQ: Well, then I have to eat before I go. Me: Okay. There are hamburgers, hot dogs and ribs in the fridge. DQ: We're having that again? Me: No, but you can eat that before you go and then have dinner later. DQ: I'm not eating anything (apparently she expects this ploy to allow her to get out of going) Me: You need to eat something before you go. DQ: No, I'm not eating anything. Me: (now seeing red and not speaking very nicely) Fine, but if you get sick, it's your own fault. I don't want to hear about it, and I don't want a call. DQ: Well, it's your fault for not buying groceries.
This is the point where my head spun around and flew off my body. It is a very good thing I was at work and she was not.
Round 3 is up now since I have to call and tell her to get her clothes changed and get ready to go. Any bets on how this conversation goes?
