Scene: Alex and dad are in the bathroom getting ready for bed. Alex is talking about the very kewl remote controlled car he wants to get for this birthday and/or Christmas.
Dad: Alex, you will get presents, *if* you are good. That means listening to us when we tell you to do something.
Alex: Dad…C’mon Dad! You know me… I am good!
With an added smile and a twinkle of the eye, it is hard not to laugh.
