Can I please have that drumset I saw at the toy store, the one with the ten snares and the keyboard attachment that doesn't turn down below 200 decibels? You know, the Migrainator 2000?

Sure sweetie, when you get married I will buy it for you as a wedding gift.

Can I stay up until 2am to watch the Nightmare on Elm Stree marathon?

Absolutely!  But I have to warn you, your night light is broken.  Oh, and you still have to go to school in the morning.

Can I practice my juggling with your collection of Limoges vases?

Sure, sweetie! Right after you complete your four-year degree at juggling school!

Can I have a pony? And my own barn to keep it in?
You are only young once. After that you have to think up some other excuse.

Sure thing, sweetie.  Of course, in order to afford that, we'd have to sell the house, and have all of us move INTO the barn with the pony.....oh, and here's a shovel.  What's it for?  Oh, you'll see.....  >:D

Can I perform with my heavy metal death band at the old-folks' home?

Yes, just let me call the people and have them turn the tower on its side first.

Sure, afterwards you can clean your room...and the entire house...and sweep the street while you're at it.

Do I need to unplug the toaster before I wash it in the dishpan?

Well, since you said please.......sure.  It just so happens that "grenade" is the French word for pomegranate.  Go look in the fruit basket, I think we have some.

Can I get a full-sized trampoline for my bedroom?

Of course sweetheart, but you have to insulate the ceiling, give up your bed, and put all your video games in my room.  Wouldn't want them to get damaged, now would we?

Can I please go to Tijuana for my 16th birthday??

Sure, no problem, sweetie! Here, just let me handcuff you to your chaperones and you're all set!

Can I take our kitty cat over to play with the neighbor's six-foot python?

Back in the early 60's, it was close enough to the Korean war for kids to have hand grenades brought home by their uncles.  The kids said they were disarmed, but how were we to know?

It was never the dad's, it was always the uncle's.

I always envisioned these bachelor uncles showing off to their nephews, by arming them to the teeth.

Of course!  It's so wonderful to see you taking an interest in Mommy's work.

Can I try to skateboard in a handstand position?
