a real life conversation...

...about doritos.

the scene:  graham wanted to eat doritos.  he did not want to eat the quesadilla and apple slices i made for his lunch.  i told him he could have doritos AFTER he ate his quesadilla and apple slices.  he didn't think that was a very good idea.

graham:  mama, can i please have some doritos?

me:  nope.  you have to eat your lunch first.

graham:  but i'm not hungry for my lunch.  i'm hungry for doritos.

me:  no doritos until you eat your quesadilla and apples.  

graham:  (with tears welling in his eyes, bottom lip quivering, arms crossed over chest)  mama, you hurt my feelings.

i have one child who is completely non emotional.  i have one child who is completely over emotional.  can you guess which one graham is?
