Something You Don’t Hear Everyday

The Girl: It’s my turn!

The Boy: No.  I only had it for a few minutes.

TG: It’s been more than a few minutes.

TB: No.  It’s just been a few minutes.  You didn’t even want to do math, anyway.

TG: Well, I do now.  It’s my turn.  Give me the abacus!

TB: No!  It’s my abacus!  I had it first!

TG:  It’s not your abacus!  It’s both of ours.  We have to share!

TB: I’m still doing my math.  I need the abacus.

TG: But it’s my turn.  Give me the abacus!

<A brief tussle over the abacus ensues>

Me: Children, either share the abacus or I’m putting the math packet away.

TB & TG: Yes, ma’am.
