FTT #71

Tina the three-year-old is a dramatic little cutsie.  For a while recently when she did not get her way she would flop on the floor and cry, “Nobody likes me!”  This morning she tried a variation:  after the customary floor-flop, she sobbed, “I don’t like anyone!”

Regina the seven-year-old, who is flirting with the age of reason, tried reasoning through the problem:  “Don’t you like Tina?”

Trapped!  “Mmmmmm,” Tina responded, unsure how to break through the objection, but unwilling to admit defeat.  Then she changed the subject.
