Primo: You opened a new box of cereal!
Primo: But you’re supposed to finish the other boxes that are already open first. And you’re not supposed to eat cereal for supper.
Me: Says who?
Primo: It’s the right thing to do. Didn’t your mother teach you?
Me: I don’t care. I wanted this cereal. And this is my house and my cereal, so I win.
Primo: If we have kids, will you let them open the new boxes before finishing the old ones?
Primo: Will you open the new box?
Primo: What if the kid says, “How come you get to open it and I don’t?”
Me: I’ll say, “When you’re paying the mortgage and buying the groceries, you can open whatever you want.”
Primo: But that’s different rules for kids and for grownups.
Me: So what?
