Me: E, you need to take your shower *now*.
E: One second.
(I silently seethe)
Me: E, I need to tell you something.
Me: I really don't like the whole "one second" thing.
E: Okay. One minute.
I actually had to laugh at that (of course, I then launched into an explanation for which the summary is "it's not the unit of time that's the problem, it's the attitude of non-cooperation.")
Bonus: Conversation with the 7-year-old
We are listening to the "Folk" Channel. A song comes up that talks about hitchhiking.
A: What's hitchhiking?
C: It's when someone stands by the side of a road with their thumb out and a car stops and gives them a ride.
A: Cool. That sounds like fun.
Needless to say, what followed was a conversation about crazy people and how dangerous hitchhiking (and picking up hitchhikers) is nowadays.
