More Negotitations

Me: Zachary, would you help me clean the baseboards? I'll give you a treat and also tell Papa that you helped me when he comes home from work. He'd be very proud.

Zachary: OK, but can I smell the cleaner first?

Me: Sure.

(Zachary sniffs it and approves)

Zachary: Also, what exactly is it we're cleaning off the baseboards?

Me: Oh, it's dust and splashes from milk and stuff.

Zachary: Stuff? Like what kind of stuff? What would you say is the grossest thing that would be on there?

Me: Oh, I don't know, food I guess.

Zachary: Any mucus?

Me: No, I don't think so.

Zachary: OK, then.
