Money Troubles

Me: All right, count it up. What do you have?
The Lovely Daughter: Sixty-six cents. That's a lot of money!
M: It's not very much money.
TLD: So could we get something big or something small?
M: It'd have to be small. Really small.
TLD: WAAAAHHH! How could you do this to me?
M: I'm not doing this to you. I haven't done anything. That's your money that you counted.
TLD: WAAAAHHH! The money is bullying me!

EXTRA-SUBTLE BONUS DIALOGUE:

TLD: Have you got any money?
M: Yeah, I have some.
TLD: I want to spend it.

OMG, it has just occurred to me that for kids now-a-days, bullying has replaced "so and so has touched me in a 'NO' place". I had a friend who used to teach art to kids and whenever she asked this one child to do something he did not want to do he would run screaming to his mom that my friend touched his penis.

The Lovely Daughter is prone to using the complaint that she thinks will work. Good for her! But it's not a very good guide to what's actually going on.
