Zachary: “I want you to get me another hard basketball at the store.”

Me: “Why?”

Z: “Because the other one is lost.”

Me: “Where did it go?” (knowing he had just sent it shooting over the couch)

Z: “Um…behind the couch.”

~ pause ~

Me: “So…can’t we get it out from behind the couch?”

~ longer pause ~

Z: “Yeahhh…….”

Me: “So then do you really need a new basketball?”

Z: “Yeah.”

Me: “Why?”

Z: “Because.”

Me: “Because why?”

Z: “Because I WANT one. Okay??”
