Me: "No. We have to get you to Boy Scouts."
Meanwhile, I'm busily unloading the dishwasher, sweeping the floor and setting the timer on the coffee machine....
Me: "NO! We have to go. NOW!"
Zach: "PLEEEEEEEEEZZZZZZE???????!!!!! READ ME THIS COOL BOOK ABOUT CATS!!!!?????"
Me: "STOP IT! We have to drive you to Boy Scouts! I don't have time to read a book about about cats!!"
Satisfied that Zach finally understands, I bag up the garbage, wipe off the stove and set out the breakfast dishes for tomorrow.....
Zach: "Ok. Mama?"
Zach: "What does n-o-c-t-u-r-n-a-l spell?"
Zach: "Thanks. What does p-l-a-y-i-n-g spell?"
Zach: "What does f-e-l-i-n-e spell?"
Me: "Feli.....WAIT A MINUTE!!! Are you having me read that freaking cat book to you???"
Me: "You are!! You TOTALLY ARE!!!"
And that's how Zach got me to read a book to him without reading a book to him.
