Abby: Dylan, do you want a hug and kiss?
Dylan: NO! (as petulantly as you can imagine. This is not feigned grumpiness.)
Abby: No hug and kiss for you, then.
Dylan, frantic: Hug and kiss! I want a hug and kiss!
Abby: OK! (hug and kiss ensues)
I hear this all of the time around here. All of the time.This can happen five times in a row and still Dylan falls for it.
Things could be worse.
