Felix: Mum
Me: Yes Felix
Felix: You know how if I save my pocket money* you’ll match it so I can buy a new game for my DS.
Me: Yes
Felix: Well, that’s your money you’re giving me as pocket money.
Me: Yes
Felix: Well you could keep it instead of giving it to me and just buy my new game now?
(sigh of all sighs)
(brain imploding at the fact he worked that out already)
Me: That’s not really the point though Felix.
(cue crocodile tears of EPIC proportions)
(cue wailing)
(cue whining)
Felix: But I really want a new game …

* every year we intend to give pocket money (50 cents for each year of age with a system for deductions and bonuses) and it never takes.
