Me: I’m going for a bike ride. Be back in a couple of hours.
Sean: A couple of hours? That’s a long time! What am I supposed to do without you?
Me: Well, it takes that long…I have to get there, and then I have to ride, and then I have to come back.
Sean: I suppose I’m not allowed to watch Smallville while you’re gone.
Sean: And I know I can’t watch Monk either.
Me: No, you can’t.
Sean: So what am I supposed to do?
Me: Isn’t there some sort of quest you can go on?
Sean: I can’t save the world all the time. Sometimes, other people have to do it.
Me: Would you rather I not go?
Sean: No, I want you to go. I just want to watch Smallville while you’re gone.
Me: Well, if you do that you’ll have to watch the same episodes again when I get back.
Sean: Okay, fine. I give in to your demands. The plane will be waiting at the airport.
Me: Don’t forget the $30 million.
Sean: Whatever, terrorist.
