Primo: Will you be up when I get back from the county [political party] meeting?
Me: Probably not.
Primo: But we need to change the kitty litter before I leave tomorrow!*
Me: We can do it now.
Primo: But - I thought we were going to get busy!
Primo: But the kitty litter!
Me: Either now or you do it by yourself when you get home.
Primo: I can't do it by myself!
Me: Then we have to do it now.
Primo: I thought we were going to get busy!
Me: You have to choose.
Primo: No! You need to stay up!
Me: You could skip the meeting.
Primo: I have to go!
Me: No you don't.
Primo: You mean - I could not go to it?
Me: Which would you rather do? Get busy or hang out with political people?
* Driving to Florida to get the remaining boxes of papers that will take us days to review and to get Sly and Doris' ashes and, I hope, get rid of them before he returns home.
