Friday afternoon school pickup; interrupting a pleasant "How was your day" type conversation...
Schatz (frantically): Where's my backpack? I LOST it!
Me: I put it in the trunk with Maura's backpack.
Schatz (starting to melt down): Don't PUT it there! ARGH! I don't LIKE it in the trunk!
Me: If you do not want your backpack in the trunk, can you think of a better way to tell me? Preferably a way that you are NOT yelling at me?
Schatz (tapping on the top of the trunk): --- .--. . -. - .... . - .-. ..- -. -.-
Me (mimicking her tapping): What is this? .--. .- - .. . -. -.-. .
Schatz: That's secret code for open the trunk.
Me: Do you mean Morse code?
Schatz: Yes, Mom. That's Morse code for "Please open the trunk, Please."
Me (opening the trunk): Fair Enough
