Little guy: I'm hungry. Will you make me a sammich?"
Me: "OK, but you have to tell me three things you love about me because all I ever hear from you is what you want."
Little guy: "Ugh!"
Me: "You do know how to make a sandwich."
Little guy: "OK...You're nice."
Me: "Oh, thank you!"
Little guy: "You're kind."
Me: "Uh, same thing as the first thing you said."
Little guy: "You make me happy."
Me: "Oh, that's the best one yet!"
And I made him a sandwich...even though I totally knew that he meant, "You make me happy when you make me a sammich."
P.S. This painting is part of a left hand challenge I'm doing. I'm right handed...bringing awkwardness to my art as well.
