Nick was pretending to be a dog at my feet. He was on all fours, barking, zigzagging back and forth, generally being a nuisance. I told him to leave me alone. I kept tripping over him as I was getting ready for work.
"Nick," Mommy says in an irritated voice, "please leave me alone right now!"
"But," Nick replies in the sweetest, saddest voice ever, "I just want to be with you, Mommy."
