Heart Broke.

Me: “Can you give this treat to Huck for me, please Tom?”

(Tom does)

Me: “Thanks, Tom!”

(Tom runs to room, shuts the door.)

Me: “Tom?  What’s wrong?”

Tom (teary voice): “I didn’t want to give Huck a treat.”

Me: “Oh?  Why not?”

Tom: “Because I wanted to play.”

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry.  You can still play, but I thought you wanted to give Huck a treat.”

Tom: “I didn’t.”

Me (trying not to laugh): “Well, I’m sorry that was so upsetting to you.  You can play now, though.”

Tom: “But my heart.  My heart is broke.”

(Fake cry.  End scene.)

    Love this! And sadly I know someone else who has said some similar things. E has started talking about his feelings a lot and how they “hurt” When you say “why do you your feelings hurt?” you will get some silly reply about his stomach or leg!

    And they say boys are “no drama.” Puh! Yesterday I asked calmly asked Ben to please stop chewing on his shoe. (Ew.) He burst into tears and yelled, “Everyone just hates me!!” Good grief.
