This is an actual conversation I had with Ryan while driving him to school yesterday.
Ryan: M & K were being mean yesterday and they told on us when we had more than one person playing "Don't Break the Ice". I told them that just because there was only one hammer, since we broke the other one, doesn't mean that we can't share.
Me: Were they playing?
Ryan: No, but they told the substitute that only one person could play and then she took the whole thing away.
Me: This sounds like a time that M & K should have minded their own business.
Ryan: I know, and that is why I told them so. You know I like to tell people when they are doing something wrong."
Me: That sounds like a time when you should have been minding your own business.
Ryan: I don't think so because the substitute gave me a special seat right next to her and I got to stay there until Mrs. L came back.
Me: I am not sure that getting a special seat is a good thing here.
Ryan: It sure was, I got all the personal space that I needed, and I could see everything!
