I’m trying to get you to do your work. You brought these here and you haven’t taken very good care of them. My mother wants to fix this but you’d better not let her. So we will go get what you need. (I have no idea what you had planned for today and I don’t care, you brought these here so this is your project) And you’d better be grateful.
Ok, now that you are in the middle of it and engaged, are you hungry? No? Well I’m going to make dinner anyway and not tell you. Then, when it’s done, I’ll expect you to drop what you are doing (that you didn’t want to do anyway) and come eat. And yes I will get pissy when it’s gotten cold, because you took too long.
