(J comes into the living room.)
J: Mom, I spilled my water!
me: Did you clean it up?
me: So clean it up!
(Goes back into kitchen)
J: (from kitchen) I can’t find any towels.
Me: If I come in there and find towels sitting out on the counter, you’re in big trouble, mister.
J: I found a towel!
(walks back in the living room with towel)
me: Did you clean up your mess?
J: No. I forgot.
(stands there, playing with towel)
me: Well go clean it up!
J: Oh, Okay.
