A Jack Production
Milo is your10-year old son. He's very intelligent, and he enjoys being helpful.
This afternoon, you're caught up in the garage, trying to finish a project that's taking much longer than you'd expected, when Milo comes out.
"My homework is finished."
"Good," you tell him.
"Do you need help?"
You pause for a second.
"I don't think there's room here for you to help, buddy. I'm through with those tools though, if you want to wipe them down and put them away for me."
Milo is happy to help. When he finishes with that, he suggests that he could order pizza for dinner. You agree, but remind him about the rules for ordering.
A bit over thirty minutes later, you're cleaned up and ready for supper. Milo has everything set out, but you see that he's ordered two mediums, instead of one large, like he was instructed. You look up at him just in time to realize why.
"Milo, I specifically told you 'no anchovies'. I don't care if Opus likes them, he has his sardines."
"But I didn't get them on yours!"
Normally, disobedience is a spanking offense. Is Milo getting a sore bottom, will it be normal, lighter, or maybe hotter, considering you told him not five minutes before he disobeyed you, or will you write it off to just being a boy and his penguin?
