The Fine Art of Negotiation

Mikey: Nico, get out of my face.

Nico: I'm not in your face.

Mikey: Nico, please! [tap tap tap]

Nico: ...

Mikey: Dude, I can't see what I'm doing. [tap tap tap]

Nico: ...

Mikey: Oh my...Nico! You're hovering! It's annoying. Stop.

Nico: I'm not hovering.

Mikey: Are you seriously [tap tap tap] kidding me right now? [tap tap tap] I can feel you breathing. Stop hovering!

Nico: But I want to see what you're doing!

Mikey: [tap tap tap] Too bad. Go away.

Nico: Dude, I can't see what you're doing if I go away!

Mikey: Not my [tap tap tap] problem.

Nico: Okay, how about if I hover from a distance?

Mikey: [tap tap tap]

Nico: Well?

Mikey: You can hover from a minimum of 10 feet away. [tap tap tap]

Nico: Dude, I can't see anything from 10 feet away!

Mikey: [sigh] Fine. You can hover from a distance but that means I can't feel you breathing on me at all. If I feel your breath, you're done. [tap tap tap]

Nico: Yes! Okay, move over. I need a better spot to hover from a distance.


  1. Don't you just LOVE summer vacation? My son (younger) and daughter (older) have similar conversations, although it usually revolves around younger brother wanting to see what older sister is doing in her room.

  2. I can just feel this coming in the future -- my 2 are only 5 and 2, but the 2 year old, ALWAYS wants to see and do what his brother is doing! I can hear it already -- hopefully they are as nice -- I remember I wasn't always with my little brother!!
