As we waited in Great Clips for haircuts, I was reading in Reader's Digest that the most feared words to hear are, "I need to talk to you." I turned to Gluten and repeated the words.
"I need to talk to you."
His eyes bugged out and his mouth slowly opened. Then even slower, he turned toward me.
"Yep it works. You just thought about all the bad things you have done that you thought you would be in trouble for, see, it says those are the most feared words." I showed him the article. At that point he finally breathed again.
"Mom, that wasn't nice."
I did use it again later.
"Gluten, I need to talk to you." I shouted up the stairway.
"Yeah, right, you're not pulling that again on me."
"What have I asked you to do three times now, and it still isn't done?"
"Oops, I'm coming." He slunk past me down the stairs to pick up his pile of folded clothes from the laundry basket.
I think I like those words.
