Conversations between Father and Child

Today at lunch the following occurred (translated from the Danish for your benefit):

The DB and the Spawn were sharing a little juice box with their lunch.  Spawn reaches for the box.
DB: Here, let me help you with that.
Spawn: NO!  I can myself! *picks up box and drinks from the straw* See?!
*slurp slurp slurp*
DB: Can I have some?
Spawn: NO! *slurp* It’s empty.
DB: Empty?!
Spawn: *slurp slurp slurp* Yes. *slurp slurp slurp*
DB: You cheat!  There’s more in the box!  You are drinking it right now! 
Spawn: NooOoo.  *slurp slurp slurp* Empty. *slurp slurp slurp*

Her poker face was impeccable.  There was just the problem of the overwhelming evidence to the contrary of what she was saying.

*slurp slurp slurp*
