Remember that scene in the Goonies where the Fratellis were questioning Chunk by threatening to put his hand in the blender? And he starts talking…
Everything. OK! I’ll talk! In third grade, I cheated on my history exam. In fourth grade, I stole my uncle Max’s toupee and I glued it on my face when I was Moses in my Hebrew School play. In fifth grade, I knocked my sister Edie down the stairs and I blamed it on the dog… When my mom sent me to the summer camp for fat kids and then they served lunch I got nuts and I pigged out and they kicked me out… But the worst thing I ever done – I mixed a pot of fake puke at home and then I went to this movie theater, hid the puke in my jacket, climbed up to the balcony and then, t-t-then, I made a noise like this: hua-hua-hua-huaaaaaaa – and then I dumped it over the side, all over the people in the audience. And then, this was horrible, all the people started getting sick and throwing up all over each other. I never felt so bad in my entire life.
This is something like that.
David, rather then fess up to something blamed it on the dog. Why?
We can see through his lies. He knows we can see through his lies. He would rather get in trouble for scaring the hell out of the dog, thereby making the dog urinate on the sofa bed, than he would admit that he had an accident during the night and overfilled his pullup. Why?
We know that when he allows himself to keep the medicines in his body, he sleeps so fully that nothing would wake him, not even a bladder full, or we clothes. It is a fact of life in our house. Deal with it and move on. All of a sudden he is bothered about it.
