One of the days, was visiting and hanging out with buddy and her 2 kids. I love kids, so I like to be around her 6-year-old son and 8-month-old girl. The boy was bored and was dragging boxes of toys to play. He asked me to help him.
Boy: Can you reach that box of Lego for me? (box was out of reach from him)
Me: Ok, sure (handed the box to boy)
Boy: Can you do me a favour?
Me: What is it?
Boy: Bring the box to the other room for me.
Me: You cannot bring it there yourself?
Boy: No, you've got to bring it there for me.
Me: Ok..... (followed him to another room)
Boy: Next, you've got to bring that (another toy) over here as well.
Me: Why? I've already done you a favour by bringing this one, right?
Boy: No, that is only half a favour.
Me: ???? A favour is a favour. There is no such thing as half a favour, boy.
Boy: No, that was only half a favour. The other half of the favour is you've got to bring me the other box and then play with me.
Wow, I'm amazed. Kids are so smart at "negotiating", not that I gave in to his favour (be it half or whole or it could have become a quarter?) because didn't want to spoil him. I wished I was that smart when I was a kid. Kids these days... *palm on face* ..... I lose. Haha! :D
