Funny conversation

ME:  (after Mack took his boots off for the 3rd time in the car this morning)  Mack, I am not playing with you.  You better have those boots on and keep them on because when I get to the store I am not going to stand out in the cold and put your boots on.  We got dressed at home.

MACK:  I don’t want to put my socks on!

ME:  Fine, Mack.  Just put the boots on.

MACK: But I want my socks on.  I do want them.

ME:  Fine, Mack, wear them.  But you better obey.  This is not funny.

A LONG, LONG PERIOD OF SILENCE.  MACK HAS ON A POUTY FACE.

MACK:  Mama, I am not playing this game with you.

ME:  (taken aback and laughing inside)  What in the world are you talking about, Mack?

MACK:  This game, where you talking to me and talking to me.

He was done listening to me.  He wasn’t playing this game anymore.

I guess he told me.
