Overheard by a fly on the wall...
(Sydney, who detests wearing soiled or wet clothing approaches her Mom, who is doing the dishes, with a DOUSED shirt on....)
S - cold, take off!
M- Oh, did you spill? Okay. (Mom removes shirt)
S - (standing there, whining) cold, cold, cold.
M - Well, are you gonna go get a clean shirt to put on? Or are you gonna be LaZy???
S - lAzY!
Proof positive that she can not only HEAR you, she UNDERSTANDS you. Time to dial down the sarcasm...
